Anna (Ania) Brown

I am a Research Software Engineer specialising in the development, optimisation and maintenance of scientific programs on HPC systems, including both CPUs and accelerators. I received a master’s degree from the Tokyo University of Technology in 2016, where I worked on algorithms to perform stencil calculations on an adaptively refined mesh efficiently on GPU. Since 2017 I have worked as an RSE at the Oxford e-Research Centre in the Department of Engineering Science at Oxford University, and since September 2019 I am also partly based in the Software Sustainability Institute at the University of Southampton. 

My goal is to support researchers across scientific disciplines to improve the quality, reproducibility and scope of their research. My current work includes projects in quantum computing, plasma physics and topological analysis of data sets. 

I have been part of the RSE community since arriving in the UK in 2017 and am also part of the Women in HPC network.
