I'm a graduate student. I study the sun by running high-performance simulations and analysing the results. I have been programming for many years. I may not be in a position to be able to answer a lot at this time, but I can still contribute by voting up/down and/or modifying others' answers! :-)

Areas of interest are listed below, in descending order of familiarity.

OPERATING SYSTEMS PROFICIENCY:

  • Mac OS X
  • Linux (generic)
  • Windows XP and later (limited)

LANGUAGES KNOWN:

  • Fortran (90 and later)
  • MATLAB (plotting, ffts, basic syntax)
  • BASH scripting
  • C/C++, Java
  • GNUPlot
  • Python
  • (Select others....)

EXPERIENCE BY TOPIC:

  • Fourier Transforms (FFTW, FFTPACK5.1, MATLAB), though less so when it comes to signal analysis applications
  • Finite difference methods (ordinary and combined-compact)
  • Spectral transform and psuedospectral methods for solving equations
  • General numerical analysis
  • Solar physics
  • OpenGL (very limited)
