Giulia Guidi is a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UC Berkeley and a graduate research assistant at the Computational Research Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory advised by Aydın Buluç and Kathy Yelick. Giulia is a 2020 SIGHPC Computational & Data Science Fellow. Giulia received both her Master's in Biomedical Engineering (2018) and her Bachelor's in Biomedical Engineering (2016) at Politecnico di Milano. Her work is in the area of computer systems research, including cloud and parallel computing, and she is interested in building a collaborative interdisciplinary research program. Giulia is currently working on the challenges of large-scale computational biology, as well as the algorithms and software infrastructures that meet the usability and performance demand of this community. Currently, she is developing a novel algorithm for de novo assembly of genomes in distributed memory using long-read sequencing data and sparse matrix abstraction as part of the ExaBiome project. Giulia is also working on how to make cloud computing more accessible for high-performance scientific computing.
