The Robin Goldstone Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established at the Pedrozzi Foundation in memory and honor of Robin’s long career in computer science and service to the Livermore community. Robin passed away in February 2024 following a courageous battle with cancer.

Robin earned a Master of Science in computer science from California State University, Chico (CSU Chico) in 1987 and began her career there as a systems software developer. In 1995, she joined Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL) as a computer scientist. During her long tenure at LLNL she worked on some of the world’s largest supercomputers, becoming a distinguished high-performance computing (HPC) expert and contributing to LLNL’s HPC strategy. She demanded much from those with whom she worked, but not more than she demanded from herself. She was proud of her participation in the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, conferences designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront.

Robin’s outdoor adventures included camping and hiking with family and friends and cheering during youth lacrosse games. She was a longtime and active board member of Livermore Phantoms Lacrosse and an instrumental supporter of the girls’ lacrosse program at Livermore High School.

Robin is deeply missed by family, friends, and colleagues, including her wife, Mary Claudino; her son, Charlie Claudino; her daughter, Kinsey Claudino.

Robin’s friends and colleagues are invited to contribute to the scholarship fund. Donations may be made via check, stock transfer, charitable distribution from retirement accounts and employee giving programs. Direct donations to the Pedrozzi Foundation can be mailed to 1141 Catalina Drive, #170, Livermore, CA 94550 or made securely online by clicking HERE.
