Dr. Carrington is the Director of the Performance Modeling and Characterization (PMaC) lab and an expert in High Performance Computing. This work has resulted in over 40 publication in HPC benchmarking, workload analysis, application performance modeling, analysis of accelerators (i.e. FPGAs and GPUs) for scientific workloads, tools in performance analysis (i.e. processor and network simulators), and energy-efficient computing. At UCSD, she is the PI for Institute for Sustained Performance, Energy, and Resilience (SUPER) DoE SciDAC-3 and lead for the energy efficiency thrust for the institute. She has presented at numerous invited talks, member of various panels and committees, and an active member of DoD HPCMP Performance team involved in their annual HPC system procurement for past 10 years.
