I work with and manage a team of computer scientists who work in software development on large multi-physics codes. These codes model real-world physical phenomenon with sets of mathematical equations. Simulation software allows us to mimic an experiment, the way animation simulates real-world situations or characters in a movie. Since these problems can take days, weeks, or months to run, we speed them up by running pieces in parallel on hundreds of thousands of computer processors—think of your iPhone as a single processor. What is exciting is that we work with state-of-the-art supercomputers, such as Sequoia.
Outside of work, I enjoy gardening, interior decoration, and crafts.
