Bio

Samuel Li successfully defended his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon in November 2017. Prior to his defense, Sam accepted a full-time staff position at National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and continued in this position after graduation. Sam started the Ph.D. program in June 2013, and began his concurrent role at NCAR in September 2016. His research interests include high-performance computing, portable performance, scientific data reduction for exascale computing, and scientific visualization.

Prior to joining UO, Samuel completed an M.S. degree from Tufts University, working with Remco Chang. His M.S. thesis was published as a research paper, Exploring Visualization Designs Using Phylogenetic Trees, at the SPIE Visualization and Data Analysis conference in 2015, and won a Best Paper award. During his time at UO, Samuel collaborated with John Clyne of NCAR, first as a summer student in 2015, and later through NCAR's Advanced Study Program (ASP) Award in Winter of 2016. Finally, Samuel did an internship at Los Alamos National Laboratory in the Summer of 2016, working with Chris Sewell, Ollie Lo, and Jon Woodring.
