I'm a postdoc doing research in high-energy particle physics. I also have a hobby interest in computer programming.

You can find me on Twitter, or check out my blog and personal website! Or you can email me at stack@ellipsix.net.

However, please don't contact me through any other channel about something that should be handled through this site. If you do, I'll probably just tell you to post it here.

Note that if a suitable compiler is available on the machine, and the filesystem permissions are not set to prohibit executing binaries from the directories you have access to, you can compile pigz and run it from wherever you happened to build it, without installing it. If there is no compiler, you could cross-compile it on another computer, although that's starting to get into more effort than might be worth it. (Depending on just how badly you need this compression to run faster, I guess.)
