From David Hughes, California State Polytechnic University-Pomona, participant in summer 2018 through spring 2019:

Hughes, D., & Ji, H. (2019, March 1). Novel Randomized Linear Algebra in Apache Spark. Poster presented at the 2019 Student RCSA Conference, Pomona, CA.

(from October 2018 report) "I created an XSEDE/Bridges user guide and gave a lecture about my project, XSEDE, Bridges, and Spark to the Big Data Analytics course on my campus."

"My major is Computer Science, so academically the program has given me exposure to modern subjects in the field. I had a chance to experience various topics like new programming languages, super-computers, advanced math, etc. that are not part of a normal curriculum. The amount of knowledge and experience I gained through the program directly exceeds what any lecture class could possibly give to a typical undergraduate student. Professionally, the program has greatly improved my public speaking skills and abilities to talk about Computer Science. Due to working with my mentor, I have taken part in giving guest lectures, going to research fairs, and talking to individuals and large groups about my research. In the past I dreaded public speaking, but now the XSEDE EMPOWER program has given me confidence in an area that is not directly related to what was written in the project summary. The XSEDE EMPOWER program was instrumental in helping me be chosen to be my University’s College of Science Valediction; this year there happened to be four perfect GPAs vying for the honor, so student research made an enormous impact on the faculty’s decision. Additionally, the aforementioned effects on public speaking skills made it easy for me to give my speech in front of hundreds of people at commencement."

From Diego Losada Rubio, participant in summer 2018:

"As first year student I had the opportunity to experience by first hand the world of High Performance Computing and so this was an experience that I will never forget and regret. Thanks to XSEDE EMPOWER Program, apart from learning, working and exploring with my mentor about parallel computing concepts using Little Fe on Physics, I was able to travel to the Petascale Institute and get to know with other students the main ideas of the concepts on parallel computing that I was going to learn right after during that summer and also I was able to go to the PEARC18 and meet lots of passionate and intelligent people that work on the world of High Performance Computing. The XSEDE EMPOWER Program helped me to understand and learn complicated concepts and challenges on parallel computing and simulations. And those challenges that I once overcame are going to help me now in a new summer research experience where I am going to be doing molecular dynamics simulations using a supercomputer."

From Brandon Ubiera, Hood College, participant in fall 2017 and spring 2018:

(email from mentor, 06/04/2018) "First of all, we deeply appreciate this opportunity.  This opportunity of the exposure to HPC and computational research means a lot for a small regional institution like Hood College.  Our EMPOWER intern Brandon Ubiera was able to learn about parallel computing, deep learning, UNIX administration while helping me with system configuration and out-reaching.  We have a student poster accepted by PEARC 18 [...]."

From April Horton, Bluffton University, participant in fall 2017:

(from email from mentor, 03/22/2019) "Last week April Horton received offers from two REU programs in Astronomy: The University of Hawaii, and The University of Wisconsin-Madison. Both had a computational slant—based on her EMPOWER project, a computational science course I taught and other programming courses at Bluffton. The University of Hawaii was her top choice for REU; she’ll be headed there soon after spring semester."

"I presented at Bluffton University’s Research Fair for my XSEDE EMPOWER Program internship entitled “Sonification and Visualization of Scientific Data.” This poster presentation session allowed me to share my research with other Bluffton students while encouraging them to pursue research opportunities they are interested in."

From Brian O. Torres Torres, University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez, participant in fall 2017:

"I was part of the XSEDE EMPOWER program as a learner for one semester where I worked with my professor Ana Gonzalez on a parallel computing project. This opened up many doors for me since it was my first work experience out of my curriculum related to my major and recruiters seem to be very interested in what I did with my professor. By being part of the program I was able to secure a COOP with NAVSEA in Newport for the upcoming semester. In addition, before starting the program I was not sure if I wanted to pursue a graduate degree and now I have decided to do a Masters on Computer Science and I am considering applying for Georgia Tech’s MS in machine learning. Honestly the program helped professionally and academically and it’s something I will never regret doing."
