Michela Taufer

Ph.D. ETH Zurich, 2002

My mentor joined the Department of Computer and Information Sciences (CIS) at the University of Delaware in September 2007. Her research interests include new algorithms and architectures for resource- and time-expensive applications in computational chemistry, physics, and biology; effective migration of large scale simulations to global computing systems based on public resources; and performance analysis, -modeling and -optimization of large scale simulations on heterogeneous, distributed systems.

She earned her MS in Computer Engineering from the University of Padova and her Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH. She was a post-doc supported by the La Jolla Interfaces in Science Training Program also called LJIS at UC San Diego, the San Diego Supercomputer Center, and The Scripps Research Institute.
