Dr. Marta García is a Principal Project Specialist at the Computational Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory and a Senior Fellow at the Northwestern Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering. Shewas ATPESC Program Director from 2016 to 2019 and introducedmultiple innovations into the program. Her researchinterests focus on computational fluid dynamics, high-performance computing, neuroscience, decision-making strategies, project management and training. In her role as part of the Catalyst Team, Dr. García assists users from the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment Program, ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge Program, Early Science Programand Director’s Discretionary projectswith code portability to the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF)systems, tuning, profiling, and debugging analysis, algorithm development, and scaling efforts, in addition to full project lifecycle assistance. Over the last five years, Dr. García has led extensive efforts in extreme-computing training withinDOE’s Exascale Computing Projects and has collaborated withHPCcenters, institutions,and industry to apply large-scale supercomputing to complexproblems in fluid dynamics, and most recently in the field of neuroscience. She is also an active reviewer for peer-reviewed conferences and has an extensive record of Committee Chair appointments.
Dr. García obtained her Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Centro Politécnico Superior (Spain) in 2001 andher Ph.D.in Fluid Dynamics from the ToulouseInstitute of Technology (France) in 2009. After graduation, Dr. García became a postdoctoral fellow at the European Centre for Research and Advanced Training in Scientific Computing and joined the ALCFas an Assistance Computational Scientist in 2010, transitioning to the Computational Science Division at its creationin 2018.
