Dr. Julie Mullen is a member of the technical staff in the MIT Lincoln Laboratory Supercomputing Center (LLSC), where she assists researchers in maximizing their use of high-performance computing resources in order to minimize their time to solution. As an expert in high-performance computing for computational engineering applications, she focuses on redesigning scientific workflows to streamline processing and improve the performance of computational engineering applications.
Mullen leads the design and creation of online professional education courseware for the LLSC. As part of this effort, she facilitates the development of new tools for the Open edX platform to provide support for online Laboratory courseware. Her research includes learning analytics for adaptive learning design and the integration of hands-on physical construction and experimentation with massive open online course technologies. Her work has been published in both the scientific computing and educational domains.
Mullen earned a PhD degree in engineering from Brown University and a BS degree in mechanical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
