Profiles series: Six questions for the 2016 NCSA Blue Waters Graduate Fellows

09.19.16 -

The Blue Waters Graduate Fellowships hosted by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a year-long opportunity for Ph.D. students around the country to gain valuable experience with supercomputing and the chance to perform research on the fastest supercomputer on a university campus anywhere in the world.

The Graduate Fellows are expected to be far enough along in their graduate program to have decided to use high performance computing and/or data analysis as a primary part of their thesis research. The chosen Fellows are given an allocation on Blue Waters of up to 50,000 node-hours (1.6M core hour equivalents) in their first year in order to further pursue their research topic, as well as a stipend and tuition allowance. Further allocations are possible as they make progress towards their degree.

Follow throughout this series as we individually highlight the 2016 Blue Waters Graduate Fellows to learn more about their research. Profiles will be shared here, on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
