The Research Computing (RC) team welcomed Mariana Levi, PhD in August. Mariana will be one of the team’s computational scientists, assisting researchers with using the full potential of the Discovery cluster. Mariana spent her PhD years developing novel models to simulate large-scale biomolecules, such as the ribosome, and gained experience in effectively utilizing high performance computing (HPC) systems. Her passion is to explore how high-performance computation can assist science through interaction with faculty and students. She looks forward to helping researchers across campus with using Discovery.
