Xinyi Guo is involved in algorithm design and software development for computational chemistry applications. She holds a B.A. in physics and mathematics from Pomona College and a Ph.D. in astrophysics with a secondary field in computational sciences and engineering from Harvard University. For her dissertation research on fundamental plasma physics, she discovered mechanisms for particle heating and acceleration in collisionless shocks using state-of-the-art ab initio plasma simulations. Xinyi has also conducted research on gravitational waves at the California Institute of Technology. In her free time, she enjoys photography, traveling, and classical music.
