Amit Majumdar is the Director of SDSC’s Data Enabled Scientific Computing division and is an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiation Medicine and Applied Sciences at UC San Diego. He received his B.S. from Jadavpur University, Calcutta, India in 1985, M.S. from Idaho State University in 1988 and Ph.D. from University of Michigan in 1996. After working one year at the Ford Research Laboratory in Michigan, he joined the San Diego Supercomputer Center in 1997. His research interests are in high performance computing (HPC), computational science, and cyberinfrastructure software such as science gateways. He has developed parallel algorithms for various kinds of HPC machines and is interested in optimizing, scaling and analyzing scientific applications on HPC machines. He has been involved in computational science projects where medical applications utilize HPC and cyberinfrastructure. One of his current NSF funded projects involves developing a neuroscience gateway (NSG) for computational neuroscientists. He is PI, Co-PI on multiple research projects funded by NSF, AFOSR, and industry (Intel, Microsoft).
