About Me

Created by Lauren Beecher

My name is Nicholas A. Danes and I’m a Computational Scientist, helping users 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.

How I Created this Website

This website was created using the static site generator (SSG) called Jekyll using a combination of the Minima theme and the John Doe CSS stylesheet. I highly recommend it for folks who would like to run a personal blog and also know some basics about HTML/CSS.

For editing the HTML, CSS and Markdown files, I primarily use Vim or Neovim with no plugins.
