Speeding up your code: Introduction to MATLAB optimization and vectorization

February 17, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Although there are usually many ways to code MATLAB to calculate what you want, the way you set up the code can have a big impact on how long it takes to run. This becomes especially important with larger data sets.  In this workshop, we will use a provided example data set to demonstrate a few of the simpler steps you can take to help your code run more efficiently.

This online workshop is intended for people with a basic familiarity with MATLAB and MATLAB code.  Participants will need to have MATLAB loaded and running on their computers. This workshop will be held via Zoom. To attend, please register in advance.

About the Presenter

Dr. Andrew Thomas is a Professor of Oceanography in the School of Marine Sciences (SMS) and has been at U Maine for about 25 years. His research is focused on quantifying time and space patterns of temperature and plankton variability in the ocean, especially as they relate to global warming. This work often makes use of global satellite measurements and is funded by both NOAA and NASA. He has been writing code or over 30 years in a number of languages to analyze and visualize large, multidimensional ocean data sets. In SMS, he teaches classes in both Data Analysis and Satellite Oceanography and supervises many undergraduate independent studies and capstone projects.
