Ph.D. from Columbia and NASA GISS in Supercomputing



For my Ph.D. I continued to do research in climate modeling on supercomputers at Columbia University and NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) using NASA supercomputers, also some of the fastest in the world, like those at NCAR.

Again (see M.S. Credentials entry), this research required a lot of sophisticated programming (i.e., computer science; see B.S. Credentials entry) with knowledge of the underlying hardware (i.e., electrical engineering; see B.S. Credentials entry). For advanced study in this I attended NASA's High Performance Computing School at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt MD, as well as building my own "supercomputer" (same networked parallel processors but fewer and slower).

Some of this modeling supercomputer research is described in my dissertation available on the NASA GISS website.
