M.S. from UA and NCAR in Supercomputing
I took many advanced courses at the University of Arizona (UA)
regarding climate modeling on supercomputers and did very
well in all of them.
I then did research in climate modeling on supercomputers
there using National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)
supercomputers, some of the fastest in the world.
Climate models are some of the most sophisticated programs
(software) ever written, and climate modeling requires a lot
of sophisticated programming (i.e., computer science; see
entry). For example, I programmed (a.k.a. coded) part of
NCAR's climate model, including finding and fixing a major bug
that had been there since it was created years before. See
and search for "Thresher" twice.
Supercomputers are mostly computers made with up to thousands
of "parallel" processors networked together. Programming
these networked parallel supercomputers requires knowledge of
this underlying hardware (i.e., electrical engineering; see
