Biography and current work


My group provides computing resources, HPC training and expertise to the EPFL community.


Graduated in mathematics at EPFL after having spent one exchange year at Carnegie Mellon University in the US, she decides to engage in a PhD thesis in scientifing computing at EPFL. While doing her PhD studies, she takes care of the computing facilities in her lab, including the administration of the cluster of the Analysis and Scientific Computing Institute. She is founder and former president of the GNU Generation, a student association promoting free software. After her PhD she obtained a position as HPC expert and assistant manager at the Basic Sciences Faculty at EPFL. She is now the Executive Director of the Scientific IT and Application Support Center at EPFL.
