Vitae (pdf format)
Ph.D. ETH Zurich, 2002
Michela Taufer joined the University of Delaware in 2007 where she
was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2012.
She earned her MS in Computer Engineering from the University
of Padova and her Ph.D. in Computer Science from the
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH).
She was a post-doctoral research supported by the La
Jolla Interfaces in Science Training Program (also called LJIS) at UC
San Diego and The Scripps Research Institute. Before she joined the
University of Delaware, Michela was faculty in Computer Science at the
University of Texas at El Paso.
Michela has a long history of interdisciplinary work with high-profile
computational biophysics groups in several research and academic
institutions. Her research interests include software applications and
their advance programmability in heterogeneous computing
(i.e., multi-core platforms and GPUs); cloud computing and volunteer
computing; and performance analysis, modeling and optimization of
multi-scale applications. She has been serving as the principal
investigator of several NSF collaborative projects. She also has
significant experience in mentoring a diverse population of students
on interdisciplinary research. Michela's training expertise includes
efforts to spread high-performance computing participation in
undergraduate education and research as well as efforts to increase
the interest and participation of diverse populations in
Michela has served on numerous IEEE program committees (SC and
IPDPS among others) and has reviewed for most of the leading journals
in parallel computing.
