Santiago Núñez-Corrales is a Research Programmer at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He completed his doctorate in Informatics under Prof. Eric Jakobsson, with a minor in Global Studies and an ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellow (2017). He obtained a B.S, in Computer Engineering from the Costa Rica Institute of Technology. His current research involves understanding complex multiscale stochastic systems -systems with irreducible noise that can be described at multiple scales and are thermodynamically irreversible- by focusing on interactions rather than dynamics or trajectories through stochastic methods, and developing mathematical physics theory and cyberinfrastructure embodying principles derived from this view. At present, Núñez-Corrales is the Outreach Coordinator for the Open Storage Network, an NSF-funded initiative that aims at creating a nation-scale distributed research data storage cyberinfrastructure layer. In the context of the Whole Tale Project, his work has focused in reproducibility of ecological niche models, in particular those using maximum entropy principles. More recently his research aims at the development of cyberinfrastructure within the WT-RDA environment enabling computationally-assisted science through a hierarchy-of-hypothesis approach as a means of increasing the reproducibility and transparency of computational experiments.
