“I would not be where I am today without the Parallel Computing class I took at CSB/SJU with Dr. Mike Heroux. That class introduced me to the world of high-performance computing and set me on the path to where I am now. Not only did I learn the technical skills I needed to prepare me for graduate school and beyond, but my time at CSB/SJU also taught me the much trickier lessons of working with others. You learn how to inspire others to do their best work. You learn what a good mentor looks like. These things have been invaluable to my success as a technical leader in my career.”
