Nicholas A. Danes, PhD


My name is Nicholas A. Danes and I’m a Computational Scientist, helping researchers with their High Performance Computing support needs at Colorado School of Mines. I was born and raised in the Central Valley, California, but now living in Denver, Colorado.

In 2013, I completed a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, with a minor in Computer Science at CSU Bakersfield. In Late 2019, I completed my PhD in Computational and Applied Mathematics at Colorado School of Mines. After graduating, I worked in the industry as a Computational Engineer for less than a year, realizing I enjoyed more of the research computing/software aspect of my work, rather than the research itself, which led me take my current position as a Computational Scientist.

I have a variety of hobbies and personal interests. Most recently (as of mid 2022), I’ve grown a strong interest in evidence-based health & fitness, dropping 17 lbs so far this year! I also play drums in a variety of local bands and have been playing since high school. Finally, I enjoy hanging out with my dogs & partner, cooking, and PC gaming.
