Daniel Lemus's Biography
Daniel A. Lemus received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at El Paso in May of 2012. He was a participant in the 2011 SURF program at Purdue and worked with Dr. Pablo Zavattieri in Civil Engineering on a simulation tool that models nano-scale adhesion of structures such as carbon nanotubes and graphene sheets using finite element analysis software.
Daniel has experience with socket programming, Linux device interfacing, and Rappture tool building.
Currently he is a 4th year PhD student in the iNEMO group. His research work focuses on the optimization of numerical algorithms for quantum transport through low rank approximation and heterogeneous computing. His current projects include application of low rank approximation methods to NEGF scattering calculations and optimization of Intel Xeon Phi performance in NEMO5.
