Computer Systems, High Performance Computing
My research focusses around extreme-scale computations, such as whole-earth climate and gyrokinetic plasma simulations. These present increasing challenges in computer science in the aspects of reliability, scalability, and energy efficiency.
I like to tackle difficult research problems at the cutting edge of modern computer systems, both in software and hardware. My specific area can be classified as High Performance Computing and performance evaluation. My research involves the development of new algorithms and techniques, and an exploration of their properties. It also has a deep anchoring in experimental practice. It has often involved the construction of large and complex artefacts, which have been released as open source or have been delivered to industrial partners.
