Stephanie Labasan is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Oregon. She also is a Lawrence Graduate Scholar at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and she currently resides in Livermore, CA. Stephanie's research interests are in high-performance computing and power and performance trade-offs. As part of her Lawrence Scholar role, she is currently researching methods for optimizing visualization algorithms on power-constrained systems.

Prior to joining UO, Stephanie received her B.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA in 2013. She also has interned at LLNL in 2012, 2013, and 2014, before returning as a Lawrence Scholar in June 2016. During one of her internships, she participated in the SC12 Student Cluster Challenge. During her time at UO, Stephanie also interned at Intel in Hillsboro, OR for one year (June 2015-June 2016). While at Intel, she worked closely with the co-design teams of future x86 platforms to further improve power management capabilities.
