research overview

  • I am an applied computer scientist and have made contributions in a wide-range of areas (see list above). As director of the UCB Computational Science Center, I built a computational science program and have worked to lay its foundations in terms of people, organization, funding, computational resources, and research collaborations. Of particular note is my leadership in bringing high-performance computing resources to the university community, developing next-generation atmospheric dynamical cores, and building science gateways. Current efforts include working with TACC at the U. Texas at Austin to support their NSF funded Tier 2 computational systems and serving as co-director of the recently funded $13.6M DOE Center for Micromorphic Multiphysics Porous and Particulate Materials Simulations within Exascale Computing Workflows.

selected publications


courses taught

  • CSCI 2400 - Computer Systems
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Covers how programs are represented and executed by modern computers, including low-level machine representations of programs and data, an understanding of how computer components and the memory hierarchy influence performance. Same as CSPB 2400.
  • CSCI 4830 - Special Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Covers topics of interest in computer science at the senior undergraduate level. Content varies from semester to semester. Only 9 credit hours from CSCI 4830 and/or CSCI 4831 can count toward Computer Science BS or BA.
  • CSCI 7000 - Current Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2022 / Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Covers research topics of current interest in computer science that do not fall into a standard subarea. May be repeated up to 8 total credit hours.
