My name is Christopher Allison. I am the Systems Administrator for The Michtom School of Computer Science at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts.
This means that, with the help of the rest of the Computer Science Systems Operations team, I assist the faculty, students, and staff in Computer Science in using technology to accomplish their educational, research, and administrative goals.
If you are a current or prospective member of the Computer Science Department, and you require technical assistance, please:
Note that I closely monitor email and calls/voicemail to the above contact points, and endeavor to reply to all such messages in a timely manner. I only read/listen to messages sent to me directly when time and other work permits.
