Hi, I’m Pate and I do things with computers. Most of these things are related to high-performance computing. I like making things run faster/better and making HPC easier to use. 

I am currently finishing up my PhD at the University of Colorado under the advisement of Elizabeth Jessup.

My PhD work is on Lighthouse, which focuses on improving user-efficiency when using complex mathematical libraries through the use of machine learning. These libraries are commonly found in scientific computing such as PETSc, SLEPc, LAPACK, and Trilinos.
