Nils Irland
IT Systems Administrator
As the IT Systems Administrator, Nils maintains the computer systems used by staff at the Center for Dairy Research and assists with day-to-day technical support. Nils comes to CDR with more than a decade of experience in information technology but his passion for IT goes back to his early childhood. In fact, Nils built his first computer at the age of fifteen before going on to earn his B.S. in Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Since his graduation in 2006 Nils has had the opportunity to participate in a number of unique IT-related projects including one at the South Pole as a part of the University’s IceCube project.

While his interests are diverse, Nils remains passionate about information technology. He particularly enjoys the fact that the field is always changing, which allows him to remain curious and continue learning on a daily basis.
