Helping Underserved Populations Through Evaluation: Q&A with Lorna Rivera

"Every year, thousands of researchers flock to Supercomputing (SC), the leading conference for high-performance computing (HPC) research, to present best practices and findings in the HPC field. Groups focused on creating inclusive measures in the HPC community have been steadily growing over the past few years at SC, and Georgia Tech’s own Lorna Rivera is a catalyst for several of these initiatives.

Rivera is a research scientist at Georgia Tech’s Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC) and for the Women in High Performance Computing (WHPC). 

Her research for both of these programs helps aggregate and analyze data in meaningful ways to determine custom-tailored approaches to advance initiatives focused on minority or underserved groups. 

After providing a booth talk detailing initiatives in CEISMC and WHPC during SC19, the School of Computational Science and Engineering had the opportunity to discuss with Rivera updates on her latest efforts."
