Marc Túnica: a brief introduction.
Hello everybody! My name is Marc and I am writing from the mediterranean city of Barcelona, land of several personalities such as Antoni Gaudí, Mercè Rodoreda and Leo Messi. I was born in this city 23 years ago. Currently, I am studying physics and maths at the University of Barcelona.
I would describe myself as an active person, maybe a little bit impatient too. I am passionate for science and maths. I am interested in the huge number of opportunities that computer science brings us to study physic systems. I also play guitar (extremely bad, actually), particularly, I enjoy playing jazz. If I have to choose a film, it is Midnight in Paris by Allen, a book, 1984 by Orwell and a song, Isadora by Christian Scott.
About Summer of HPC
Regarding my virtual stage in the Summer of HPC, I am involved in the 2120 High Performance Quantum Fields program. Specifically, I am beginning a project about Carbon Nanostructures (CNS). The main goal of this project is to collaborate with the CNS group from the Jülich Supercomputing Centre, performing and creating a C++ library and an algorithm to model CNS using fermionic matrixes. I will learn and try to post about C++, OpenMP, GPU programming and, in general, scientific program design.
Hope to know more about all of you. And if you have planned to visit Barcelona do not hesitate to contact me: I have a list of the best restaurants!!
