I live in San Diego, California, where I work at the San Diego Supercomputer Center in the Data-Enabled Scientific Computing Division. I am also a Research Faculty member at the Computational Sciences Research Center and the Department of Computer Science at San Diego State University. See for more information on my SDSU activities. My research is focussed on education, outreach & training on HPC systems, computational science, parallel programming, and advanced computational environments that support high-end scientific applications.

Current projects include:

  • Developing educational and training materials to support the work of scientists running computational problems on HPC systems, including the SDSC Comet and Triton Shared Computing Cluster (TSCC) systems.
  • Investigation into parallelization of the General Curvilinear Coastal Ocean Model (GCCOM), which is a nested, 3D staggered grid coastal ocean model. GCCOM is a non-hydrostatic, large eddie simulation (LES) CFD model capable of running both ocean and atmospheric simulations at very high resolutions (meter-scale). Parallelization approaches include MPI and GPU techniques.
