Gustavo Ramírez was born in 1989 in Costa Rica, and he holds a B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Costa Rica (2011) and a M.Sc. in High Performance Computing from Trinity College Dublin (2017). He has been part of research projects at multiple research labs at the University of Costa Rica: PRIS-Lab, CICIMA and others, with topics including: quantum computing, low energy electron diffraction, renormalisation, protein-protein interactions. During July-August 2017, he was also part of the PRISMA Cluster of Excellence through an internship at the Department of Theoretical Physics of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. On the teaching side, he has around 4 years of experience as a lecturer at the school of physics of the University of Costa Rica. In industry, he has worked on entrepreneurship projects, co-creating a web development company in 2012, among others.
For his M.Sc. thesis at Trinity College Dublin, he developed a code from scratch for the generation of Markov chain configurations for the lattice simulations of the 2D Gross-Neveu model using Hybrid Monte Carlo, under the supervision of Dr. Marina Marinkovic.
Gustavo has been selected for the position in the ESR1 project "Scalable multigrid solvers for exascale architectures", with degree awarded by the Bergische Universität Wuppertal (BUW), The University of Cyprus (UCY) and Università degli Studi di Ferrara (UNIFE). His project is supervised by Prof. Andreas Frommer, Prof. Constantia Alexandrou and Prof. Rafaelle Tripiccione.
