Education/Background

I work in the Scalable System Software department at Sandia National Laboratories. This has given me the opportunity to help develop several large-scale parallel computers, including the Red Storm system that was later productized by Cray as the Cray XT line of supercomputers. Prior to joining Sandia in 2001, I studied engineering at the University of Iowa where I received a B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering in 1999 and an M.S. in Computer Engineering in 2001. My current research interests are in the areas of operating systems for massively parallel supercomputers, techniques for improving application resiliency to hardware faults, high-performance and scalable networking, multi-core processors, and hardware virtualization in the context of high performance computing.
