Marta Garcia Martinez

Computational Scientist

Marta García has a background in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Her research interests focus on CFD, high-performance computing, neuroscience, decision-making strategies, project management and training.


Dr. Marta García is a Principal Project Specialist at the Argonne National Laboratory and a Senior Fellow at the Northwestern Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering (NAISE). Her research interests focus on computational fluid dynamics, high-performance computing (HPC), neuroscience, decision-making strategies, project management and training. Over the last five years, Dr. García has led extensive efforts in extreme-computing training within DOE’s Exascale Computing Projects (ECP) and has collaborated with HPC centers, institutions and industry to apply large-scale supercomputing to attacking problems in fluid dynamics, and most recently in the field of neuroscience. She is also an active reviewer for peer-reviewed conferences and has an extensive record of Committee Chair appointments.

Dr. García received her PhD in Computational Fluid Dynamics from the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, INPT (France) in 2009. After graduation, Dr. García became a postdoctoral fellow at the European Centre for Research and Advanced Training in Scientific Computing (CERFACS) and joined the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility as an Assistance Computational Scientist in 2010. Dr. García joined the Computational Science Division at its inception in 2018.
