Since retirement from her position as Senior Research Scientist at Georgia Institute of Technology, Mary Trauner has been a consultant with several organizations, including the Video Development Initiative (ViDe), Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA), and currently Clemson University’s Cyber Infrastructure Technology Integration (CITI). With an educational background in both computer science and atmospheric sciences, Mary’s work has spanned "both worlds" to understand and model physical processes on large scale, parallel computing systems. She also has spent considerable time studying and deploying many digital video and collaborative technologies. Her most recent affiliations included the ViDe Steering Committee, the Internet2 Commons Management Team, the Georgia Tech representative to the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC), and the Georgia HPC task force. Mary has participated in the development of a broad range of technology websites, tutorials, user guides, and whitepapers. Examples include Clemson’s CITI web site, the ViDe Videoconference Cookbook, ViDe Data Collaboration Whitepaper, the SCOOP Application Deployment [on SURAgrid] guide, the Grid Technology Cookbook, Georgia Tech HPC website and tutorials, and an interactive tutorial on building and optimizing parallel codes for supercomputers.
