Tyler Earnest, a postdoctoral researcher through the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, received his Bachelor's Degrees in Chemistry and Physics from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in 2008, and obtained a Ph.D in Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign working under Zan Luthey-Schulten in 2016. His research focuses on the development and application of software to study whole organisms at the single cell level using stochastic, spatially resolved computer simulations. Earnest is a lead developer of Lattice Microbes: a GPU accelerated simulation code which includes highly efficient methods to sample trajectories from the solution to both the chemical master equation, as well as the reaction-diffusion master equation. His primary research interest is building detailed kinetic models of cellular processes which approach the genome scale.
