Senior Computational Scientist
Prior to joining the Purdue University in late 2015, Tsai-wei worked at the Plasma Physics Division of the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. on earth's ionosphere modeling. With a computational background, she has experiences in developing large scientific programs for advancing extreme-scale computation and exploring three-dimensional data visualization techniques.
She is selected as the XSEDE 2016 Campus Champion Fellow and will work on developing phase field crystal (PFC) models for 2D semiconductor growth with parameters comparable to real experiments. She will present the results at SC17.
