Institution/Organization: Colorado State University

Department: Mathematics

Academic Status: Doctoral student

Biography:

I am from Colorado but half of my family is originally from Chile. Growing up in Colorado, the outdoors have been a large part of my life and I try to spend as much of my free time outdoors. I am about to start my first year as a graduate student attending Colorado State University where I am pursuing a PhD in Mathematics. Throughout my academic career I have become very interested in designing algorithms that take advantage of mathematical structures. Nowhere is this more important than in high performance computing. I joined the SRP-HPC program as I felt that its focus on diversity in HPC is important in encouraging innovation and in promoting current and future opportunities for everyone.

Motivation:

I believe the SRP-HPC program has a noble cause and provides an excellent opportunity to expand my knowledge in HPC and grow my connections with others in the field.
