Technical Consulting Engineer
Gergana Slavova received her bachelor’s degree in computer science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2005. Following graduation, she joined the Intel® Software and Services Group as a Technical Consulting Engineer, a position she has held since the start.
She works in the high performance computing area where she provides technical support, training, and consulting expertise for a suite of distributed memory development tools. Specifically, Gergana works with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) – a programming model that defines the explicit communication rules for a set of parallel processes to solve complex scientific computing problems (e.g., fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, weather forecasting, bioinformatics, and astrophysics).
As a woman in technology, she’s passionate about recruitment and retention of women in the STEM fields. Her efforts vary from teaching middle school girls about what an LED is to speaking at a local Women in Tech conference. Her favorite time of year is when attending the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (followed closely by Halloween).
