Claudio Mendoza

Claudio Mendoza, PhD, is a computational physicist and Senior Research Fellow at the Physics Center of the Venezuelan Institute for Scientific Research (IVIC), Caracas. For more than 20 years he has been involved in high performance computing related to problems of astrophysical and astrochemical interest, in the design and implementation of scientific databases and in the mathematical modeling of biochemical reactions. He has participated in international consortia dedicated to the computation of massive atomic data sets to revise astrophysical opacities (Opacity Project) and of new radiative and collisional data for ions of the Iron Group required for the interpretation of astronomical spectra in the XUV and X rays (Iron Project & RmaX). He has designed, implemented and currently maintains an atomic database referred to as TIPTOPbase which can be accessed online from the Centre de Donées Astronomiques de Strasbourg, France, the Ohio Supercomputer Center, and IVIC.
