Research Group News and Updates


I have moved! I am exicted to announce that in August 2017, I joined the faculty at SUNY Buffalo (UB). This is a great opportunity for me to more formalize my integration of high performance computing and data integration in computational geodynamics research. I have a joint appointment at UB in the (a) Department of Geology and (b) Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering Program.

As head of the Geodynamics Research and Visualization Group, I hosted a Panel at UH entitled Women in STEM: Career Choices in Geosciences

My recent Journal of Geodynamics paper is highlighted in joint NIH-DOE-NSF Report on Science Drivers Requiring Capable Exascale High Perfornmance Computing
