Foundations builds community and skills around research computing at Columbia University, and in its first three years trained over 3,0000 graduate student and postdoctoral researchers at over 85 events.
Foundations for Research Computing is a campus-wide initiative to build community and technical skills around research computing at Columbia. I served as Program Coordinator for Foundations from January 2019 to August 2022, and in that time organized training for more than 3,000 researchers over 85+ workshops, intensives, and lectures.
During my time with Foundations, I proposed and implemented new programming, including a popular Python User Group and a Curriculum Innovation Grant program. I also had the pleasure of working closely with a community of instructors trained by Software Carpentry.
