Damian Rouson is a mechanical engineer with extensive experience in software design and development for multiphysics modeling, including classical, quantum, and magnetohydrodynamic turbulence and multiphase flow. He coauthored the textbook Scientific Software Design: The Object-Oriented Way (Cambridge University Press, 2011) and has been contracted to teach related courses at supercomputer centers and universities in the U.S. and Europe. He has been a PI or Co-I on research funded by the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology and has held visiting and tenure-track appointments at universities in the U.S. and in Europe. He holds a B.S. from Howard University and an M.S. and Ph.D. from Stanford University, all in Mechanical Engineering.Damian received the prestigious BSSw fellowship funded through the Department of Energy Exascale Computing Project. Better Scientific Software provides a central hub for the community to address pressing challenges in software productivity, quality, and sustainability. Through this fellowship, Damian is developing and delivering training workshops to students at minority serving institutions and diversity focused venues.
