Levi Wilbert
HPC & Linux Systems Administrator
Central IT building, room 324

Levi, originally from Evergreen, Colorado, worked as a student technician in IT for five years as a means of learning skills and eventually a new trade. On his way to outgrowing his student role he learned as much as he could about computers, software, scripting, and Linux. Joining ARCC in March 2021 as a System Administrator II, he is very excited to be working with the ARCC team, and hopes to see researchers find their "Eureka" moment that changes people's understanding of our world.
Ever the audiophile, Levi loves listening to music, especially old school 80's/90's rave, concocting musical experiments in his spare time, as well as taking long drives on windy mountain roads.

Central IT building, room 322

Tim started working full time at UW in the early ‘90's and helped to create ARCC in 2010. As a Systems Administrator, he helps make sure ARCC’s systems and services remain available for researchers to use, as well as implementing new systems and services.
