Tiffany Eulalio Joins Phi Beta Kappa, Heads to Stanford

Tiffany Eulalio is double-majoring in Computer Science (B.S.) and Biology (B.A.), with a minor in Mathematics.

Since 2015, Tiffany has been an undergraduate researcher in the Algorithms and Parallel Computing (AlgoPARC) group headed by Assistant Professor Nodari Sitchinava. In her research she has explored the overhead cost of using recursion in general purpose programs on graphics processing units (GPUs), and the challenge of developing an efficient parallel priority queue for GPUs, with applications to the single-source shortest paths problem on graphs. She was funded by NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) and Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP).

Tiffany received Achievement Scholarship for Undergraduates awards from the College of Natural Sciences two years in a row, was named an Outstanding Student in Organic Chemistry II by the Hawaiian Section of the American Chemical Society, and won Best Poster Presentation in Bioinformatics at the Third Biennial Western Regional IDeA Conference. Because of her academic achievements, Tiffany has been accepted as a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.

In her free time Tiffany enjoys hiking, drawing, origami, and playing video games.

Tiffany will continue her studies at the Biomedical Informatics Ph.D. program at Stanford University, where she is hoping to apply machine learning and parallel programming techniques to genetic data to study aging and cancer.
