Kalina is a visualization programmer for the Advanced Visualization Lab at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. Her primary work involves writing software that processes and visualizes various types of massive scientific data calculated or processed on supercomputers, such as Blue Waters. Her most recent work makes scientific visualization tools freely available to artists and scientists, through Ytini - an open-source middleware between the scientific analysis and visualization Python package, yt, and the visual effects software, Houdini. Kalina contributed to the creation of such films as "A Beautiful Planet" (IMAX), "Solar Superstorms" (fulldome), and "Seeing the Beginning of Time" (4K). She recently gave a talk at TEDxUIUC, a local chapter of the TED conference, describing her path as a woman engineer.
