I’m a Computational Science and Engineering PhD student at Georgia Tech advised by Richard Vuduc and Spencer Bryngelson. My research involves the intersection of high-performance computing, computational fluid dynamics, and SmartNICs/Data Processing Units. I want to help scientists effectively and efficiently utilize their hardware for good. If you have a comment, question, or otherwise want to contact me, please email mhawkins60@gatech.edu

Personally, I enjoy working with my hands and touching grass when I’m not studying or coding. The implementations of that idea are seen in my interests in woodworking, gardening, and more recently, art. I also love to travel and try to keep myself open to unexpected, novel experiences.
