Geography PhD student Becky Vandewalle was selected as a Frontera Computational Sciences Fellow for the 2022-23 academic year.  As a fellow, Becky will have access to the University of Texas at Austin's Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) as she gathers and analyzes data for her dissertation, which is tentatively titled "CyberGIS-Enabled Geospatial Agent-Based Modeling for Large-Scale Emergency Evacuation."

"I'm excited to address larger study areas and more complex interactions than I'm able to do with my current set of computing resources. I'm also thrilled to meet other people working intensely in high performance computing. I hope to learn new computing techniques and potentially collaborate with researchers from other fields," said Vandewalle.
