Raul Platero

Institution/Organization: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Department: Computer Science

Academic Status: Graduate Student.

What conference theme areas are you interested in (check all that apply):

Education and interdisciplinary programs in CSE;
High-order methods, novel discretizations, and scalable solvers;
High-performance computing, emerging architectures and programming paradigms

Interests: 

My research interests lie in theoretical numerical linear algebra. In particular, most of my research spans the area of scalable nonlinear generalized eigensolvers. In addition this, I am interested in the graduate experience for underrepresented minorities in STEM.

Non-Work Related Activities/Interests: 

I am participating this year as a group leader for University of Illinois’ Summer Predoctoral Institute where incoming PhD students of underrepresented groups get an opportunity to begin research and get introduced to university resources. Additionally, I am also a core member for University of Illinois’ Institute for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access where I have received a grant for research in educational policy.
