Dr. Maricris Mayes is an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. She received her B.S. in Chemistry from Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology and her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Michigan State University in 2007. Her graduate work was focused on developing new generations of ab initio methods based on coupled-cluster wavefunction formalism, which she efficiently implemented using the idea of diagram factorization techniques and recursively generated intermediates resulting to fully vectorized codes. After graduation, Maricris was a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University and was involved in studies of electron impact and photodissociation of methane using trajectory surface hopping approaches as well as studies of the mechanical and optical properties of carbon nanotubes. In 2011, she joined the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility at Argonne National Laboratory where she used Mira supercomputer for large- scale, fully ab intio calculations using highly scalable methods such as fragment molecular orbital method in GAMESS program.
