SIMODS has published its first set of articles.
Dr. Kolda is a Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories. She has led numerous projects in computational science and data analysis on topics in multilinear algebra and tensor decompositions, graph models and algorithms, data mining, optimization, nonlinear solvers, parallel computing and the design of scientific software. Her work has been cited more than 13,000 times.
Her work has received several honors, including a 2003 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), an R&D100 award, and three best paper prizes at international conferences.
She was named a Distinguished Scientist of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) in 2011 and a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) in 2015.
