  • Scientific Computing: The data-driven way: ​from the top quark to large distributed computing systems at Mathworks
  • Dr. Victor Bazterra, Mathworks
This presentation is about my journey from academic research in High Energy Physics to work for MathWorks. I will illustrate the start of that journey by showing one of my latest analyses about electroweak production of top quark (single top) using D0 detector at Tevatron. As intermezzo, I will tell about my involvement with Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) computing infrastructure as example of extremely large distributed system. CMS is one of the two generic detectors at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. I will finalize then by talking about some of my recent ​research and development I do as system engineer at MathWorks. The presentation goal is to point out the power of analytical and experimental skills needed to make these projects possible, and how scientists fit in an industry driven by innovation and technology.
