More than 30 years of scientific programming experience have provided me with extensive experience in high-performance computing, data science and scientific visualization. During this period of time, I have mentored several students and early career researchers. I am committed to help my mentees to build confidence and stay motivated as they pursue their goals. I am especially proud to support women pursuing their careers in STEM-related fields and High-Performance Computing.
