Hana’s PhD Defense

Rich is back from the University of Vienna, where he had the great fortune to serve as an external referee on Hana Strakova’s PhD dissertation committee. Hana was a Fall 2011 intern in our lab; her primary thesis advisor is Wilfried Gansterer. Her thesis breaks new ground in the development of  resilient and asynchronous numerical linear algebra algorithms for highly unreliable systems, using so-called “gossiping” techniques: “Truly distributed approaches to orthogonalization and orthogonal iteration on the basis of gossip algorithms.” Naturally, she passed with flying colors. Congratulations!

Rich, Hana, and Wilfried
