his Lic. Degree in numerical analysis in 2011 from KTH. His research is
focused on high performance adaptive finite element methods.
is the director of PDC-HPC.
joining PDC in 2008 he was the Technical
Director of the EU funded project "Enabling Grids for E-Science in Europe
(EGEE)" working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).
After joining CERN in 2002 he worked on data management issues within the
EU DataGrid (EDG) project, became the Technical Coordinator of EDG, and
coordinated the middleware re-engineering activities in the first phase of EGEE.
He holds a PhD in Business Administration and Computer Science from the
University of Vienna, Austria. His research interests include grid computing with
a focus on data management in grid environments as well as programming
environments, languages, compilers and runtime systems for parallel and
is the Head of Education & Outreach at CSC, the
IT center for science, and an adjunct professor of physical chemistry at the
University of Helsinki. He obtained his Ph.D. in theoretical physics in 2004,
and has worked since then, before joining CSC in 2007, at the universities of
Helsinki and Århus and at the Helsinki University of Technology. His research
interests include petascale computing and utilization of non-x86 processor
technologies in HPC, and other interests include combat sports (kickboxing &
MMA), quantum mechanics, and animal rights.
is a postdoctoral fellow at PDC-
HPC. He received a MS degree from
Politecnico di Torino and a PhD degree from University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign. Before joining PDC-HPC, he worked as researcher at
the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory, and as capita selecta professor at the Catholic University
of Leuven. He received an R&D100 award as part of the developer team
of the CartaBlanca code. At PDC-HPC he is part of the CRESTA EC-FP7
project to investigate the suitability of new programming models to
the next generation supercomputers. His research interests include the
investigation of novel programming models for HPC, and innovative
algorithms for parallel computing.
is a PhD student at the Computational Technology Laboratory at KTH since
Hi is working on adaptive finite element methods to compute flows in the
atmosphere and ocean.
Niyazi Cem Degirmenci
is a PhD. student in department of numerical analysis, CSC, KTH since 2010.
working on adaptive fluid structure interaction simulations using finite element
is Executive Director of EPCC and Associate Dean for e-Research within the
College of Science & Engineering at The University of Edinburgh. He joined EPCC
in 1994 as an Applications Scientist and was appointed to the role of
Commercial Manager in 1996 and subsequently Commercial Director. From
2001 to 2010 he was also Commercial Director the National e-Science Centre.
He was appointed to the role of EPCC Executive Director in 2011. His research
interests have included the application of HPC to manufacturing, Grid
computing, reconfigurable computing and most recently data intensive and low
power computing. He has led a large number of European Commission
Framework Programme projects from FP4 onwards. He currently coordinates
the PlanetHPC, APOS-EU and CRESTA FP7 projects. He holds a PhD in
Experimental Particle Physics, an MSC in Parallel Systems and a BSc (Hons) in
Physics and Digital Microelectronics.
working at PDC in January 2010. As a system
administrator, he is concentrating on the operation of PDC's HPC computer
systems. After spending several years as a software developer creating
engineering software, he began working in the area of HPC at the High
Performance Computing Center Stuttgart. There, Michael gained experience in
the installation and operation of cluster systems as well as in several projects
which were associated with the design and implementation of supercomputing
and grid infrastructures. These projects were the German D- Grid Initiative and
the European projects DEISA and PRACE. Furthermore, he brings with him his
past experience educating students in HPC. Michael obtained his qualified
engineer degree at the Technical University Leipzig.
has a MSc in Computer Science & Engineering
and a Tech Lic in Information Theory from Linköping University. After
graduating he worked ten years for Sectra AB in Linköping building distributed
systems for Medical Imaging. The last seven years he has been at Google in
Zürich, Switzerland. At Google he has worked on data storage layers,
infrastructure for large data processing, video analytics and online video for TV.
