Dr. Gabrielle Allen

Dr. Gabrielle Allen

Dr. Gabrielle Allen received a PhD in Physics from Cardiff University in 1993. After appointments at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, Louisiana State University, the National Science Foundation, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, she moved to the University of Wyoming in 2021. She is currently a Professor of Mathematics and Statistics, Adjunct Professor of Physics and Astronomy  and a Special Assistant for Strategic Initiatives in the Office of Research and Economic Development. Dr. Allen’s research has focused around the development and application of scientific community software, including the Cactus Framework, Einstein Toolkit, and Grid Application Toolkit. Although her work has predominantly been related to simulations of black holes, neutron stars and gravitational waves, her group’s software has also been applied in fields as diverse as petroleum engineering, computational chemistry, coastal modeling, and computational fluid dynamics. The interdisciplinary nature of her research is reflected in her former faculty positions in Computer Science, Physics, Astronomy, Curriculum and Instruction, and role as Associate Dean of Education. Dr. Allen has published over 100 refereed journal and conference papers and has been awarded the Gordon Bell Prize in Supercomputing in 2001, the IEEE International Scalable Computing Challenge in 2009, and the High Performance Bandwidth Challenge in 2002. In 2017 she was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society.

Dr. Amanda DeDiego


Amanda DeDiego, PhD, NCC, BC-TMH is an Assistant Professor of Counseling at the University of Wyoming and helped re-establish the graduate program in counseling at the UWC campus. She has a PhD in Counselor Education from the University of Tennessee and holds a MS in Community Counseling from the University of North Georgia. She previously served as President of the Wyoming Counseling Association advocating for broader access to mental healthcare in rural communities, suicide prevention, and licensing portability for counselors. Dr. DeDiego currently serves as a board member for Wyoming Counseling Association (Treasurer), Association for Creativity in Counseling (Treasurer), Rocky Mountain Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (President), and Chair-Elect for Western Region of the American Counseling Association. Her research agenda focuses on counselor development and addressing health disparities and mental health access for underserved communities. Her publication record includes seven book chapters, sixteen scholarly articles, and a textbook with Routledge coming out later this year. Her hope is that her research can translate into training counselors to attend to community need and advocacy for broader access to mental health resources.
