One of my early projects at MITRE resulted in a Tech Transfer to Simudyne and now has a nice feature in the Wall Street Journal: https://www.wsj.com/articles/a-new-way-to-spot-the-next-financial-crisis-11545131907
I’ve finally gotten around to updating the opportunities section of the website. There are plenty of amazing programs to apply for in 2017. Check out the page and apply now to for funding, volunteer opportunities, and summer programs.
Anyone looking to learn more about HPC should absolutely check out the High Performance Scientific Computing Coursera class offered by University of Washington!
Free online introduction to High Performance Computing!
I’m happy to share with everyone that I’ll be volunteering to help out with The Accessible World Conference and evoHaX Hackathon this April in Philadelphia!
For more information on the event, check out the website and keep up with my blog posts here:
Applications are now open for Students@SC Programs! This is a great opportunity to travel, network, attend talks, engage in tutorials, and learn from some of the brightest minds in High Performance Computing!
Applications are open for Student Volunteers, the Student Cluster Competition, and the Doctoral Showcase. Soon, you’ll also be able to apply for HPC for Undergraduates and the ACM Student Research Competition.

Elizabeth Leake wrote a great article on Women in HPC at the Supercomputing conference.
Broader engagement and mentoring programs designed to encourage people from underrepresented groups, and provide them with additional psycho-social support are useful and much needed. Corporate leadership training and counseling will help managers overcome bias. ImprovScience, STEM-Trek, Sustainable Horizons Institute, Women in HPC, and other nonprofit organizations have been formed to assist HPC industry partners with a variety of related issues.
SC15 is just over a week away and I’m very excited about the program this year.
I’m working with Students@SC and the Student Volunteers team organizing the social media and the events.
I also have a poster in the Women in HPC Workshop: http://www.womeninhpc.org.uk/SC15

Grace Rodriguez Gomez (University of Puerto Rico) had a BE epiphany. “When I was in high school, I wanted to major in Art at a community college. When friends and family told me I couldn’t earn a living with an Art degree, I enrolled in a Computer Engineering program,” she said. When her creativity wasn’t exercised, her grade point average suffered. She then switched to Computer Science, and her grades improved when she realized artistic aptitude enabled her to design more attractive and functional computer user interfaces. Because she switched majors, she’s a few years older than her peers. “I was ashamed of my delayed progress until I heard Dr. Leung’s presentation. She talked about obstacles she had overcome in life, and it made me realize that I wasn’t alone; it’s OK to move at your own pace.”
