Joe Goldman

Computer Systems Administrator

My responsibilities include computer endpoint management, watching over the servers and various storage systems used at the Cornell Lab, assisting staff with computer/technology questions, and working with the rest of the IT team to keep the computers behaving well. I’ve been in the computer field since 1983, and I enjoy the daily challenges that come along with the advanced technology systems used in today’s world. Keeps my brain active!

I started in computers as a microelectronics engineer major, but changed to software engineering and programming after 2 years. I spent 8 years as a software systems developer and database engineer at a large, world-wide banking organization. In 1995 I left banking and entered higher education with the State University of New York. My work has included: end user support and training, network engineering, cybersecurity and server management, technology strategic planning and purchasing, and a host of other technology-related tasks. I’ve had many career accomplishments that have allowed me to grow experience and knowledge—something technology is always challenging me with!

Outside the Cornell Lab

I love being outdoors when not buried in computer work. I’m not a typical technologist, I get along fine without all the gadgets. My favorite birds have always been raptors—especially owls, falcons, hawks and eagles/osprey.
