About Giuseppe

I am a Lecturer in High-Performance Computing (HPC) in the Research School of Computer Science (RSCS) at the Australian National University (ANU). I also lead the GPU development for the GAMESS Exascale Computing Project.

I hold a Bachelors' (summa cum laude) and a Masters' Degree (summa cum laude) in Chemical Engineering from the University of Salerno, in Italy. My Masters' Degree was awarded with a Honor Mention to the academic career. I obtained my PhD in Computational Quantum Chemistry from the ANU, working under the supervision of Prof. Peter Gill. My PhD focused on the development of new algorithms in computational chemistry. From 2017 to 2018, I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Research School of Chemistry at the ANU on the development of massively parallel approaches in computational chemistry. In 2018, I took the role of Research Fellow in HPC at the RSCS under Prof. Alistair Rendell, and joined the GAMESS ECP group under Prof. Mark Gordon at the Iowa State University (Ames Lab). In 2020, I started my independent career as a Lecturer in HPC at the RSCS. 

My main research focus is the development of high-performance computational science algorithm for cutting-edge HPC systems, such as exascale supercomputers. I am also always keen on trying out new hardware architectures and programming models!


I am a developer of both the Q-Chem and GAMESS quantum chemistry software packages.
