What is ACM?
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is an international learned society for computing. It was founded in 1947, and is the world’s largest scientific and educational computing society. The ACM is a non-profit professional membership group, with nearly 100,000 members as of 2019.
Lewis & Clark College is proud to have an ACM Student Chapter on campus.
The Lewis & Clark ACM Chapter aims to unify students interested in computing and related topics. This website serves as a platform for students to find various resources regarding those topics.
Justin is a senior English and Math/CS major. He's interested in digital media and the digital humanities, but he also hopes to learn more about the overlap between number theory and cryptography in the coming semester and to use that knowledge to further his understanding of security. Find him reading, writing, swimming or night-biking in his free time.
I'm responsible for a variety of library systems (library web site, EZProxy, aspects of Alma/Primo). I also support other technology endeavors on campus, including high performance computing, some web development, and will occasionally guest lecture in Computer Science courses on web APIs, jQuery, MySQL, and PHP.
I joined the Watzek Library in the fall of 2014. I serve as the subject liaison to faculty and students in the Biology, Chemistry, Molecular Biology & Biochemistry, and Physics departments, as well as, offer support for locating and managing research data.
My academic and professional background is in the natural sciences, and I know that strong research in the library lays the foundation for meaningful and relevant inquiry in the field and laboratory.
Jens Mache was born in Karlsruhe, Germany. As an undergraduate student, he studied computer science at the University of Karlsruhe/ KIT (Vordiplom in 1992). After completing a Master’s degree at Southern Oregon University in 1994, he became a Ph.D. student at the University of Oregon (Ph.D. completed in 1999, advisor Virginia Lo). In 1998, he became Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. In 2004, he was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure. And in 2010, he was promoted to Full Professor.
The following people were instrumental to the success of the LC ACM student chapter. We miss them dearly and thank them for their service.
During my time at LC, I worked on a number of projects, mostly relating to computational science and high-performance computing. I worked heavily on the BLT HPC cluster and facilitiated research in a wide range of fields, from biology and bioinformatics to computational physics and numerical analysis. Outside of academic pursuits, I enjoy cooking, sports, hanging out with my cat, and working on my car.
Ryan earned a degree in Computer Science and a minor in Rhetoric and Media Studies from Lewis & Clark College. Outside of class she is involved with the Student Alumni Association as an ambassador where she enjoys creating networks and fostering connections between past and present LC students. She hopes to pursue a career that combines her passion for CS with public policy to make CS more accessible to all.
Jamie is a third-year whose interests lie in the fields of music and computing. She grew up in the Los Angeles area. She is passionate about problem solving and cats.
Lexie is a fourth-year English and Computer Science double major. Outside of class, she is an editor for the school newspaper, and enjoys reading, crafting, and being outdoors. She hopes to pursue a career in User Interface Design, as she enjoys both the creativity and the technicality of the specialty.
Hello, my name is Ahmed Gedi. I was a Computer Science/Math major with a Latin American Studies minor here at Lewis & Clark.
I'm from Portland, OR and my passions include web & mobile development as well as cybersecurity. I was the Director of Programming Club from 2016-2019, where I helped organize Lewis & Clark's first ever hackathon, PioHacks.
