Computing Crossroads is a research initiative with the intention of providing a computing perspective across a wide variety of fields, and conversely, the huge amount of value brought to this field by those coming from areas traditionally considered unrelated. The organization aims to expose the diversity of thought, perspective and background that can be revealed upon closer examination of who really works or has worked in this field.

PhD student Ayesha Afzal, who is our local expert on MPI programming and works on performance modeling of large-scale parallel codes, is featured in a blog post about her career and what made her move from electrical engineering to computer science. Read and enjoy: The Electrical Engineer.

Computing Crossroads is supported by a ACM SIGCSE Special Projects Grant.
