I am a Lecturer of High-Performance Computing (HPC) in the School of Computing at the Australian National University (ANU).
I hold a leadership role in large multi-institutional partnerships encompassing world-leading Australian and US universities, supercomputing facilities, and IT corporations. I am the leader one of the Pawsey Centre for Extreme-scale Computing (PaCER) projects, one of the partner investigators of one of the Australasian Leadership Computing Grant, and the lead of GPU development for the GAMESS Exascale Computing Project.
In 2020 and 2021, using my algorithms on the fastest supercomputer on the planet, I broke the world record for the largest computational-driven chemical modellings of material structure, setting new standards in High-Performance Computing, and enabling the design of ground-breaking materials, catalysts, and drugs.
My passion is the development of high-performance computational science algorithms and software artefacts that use cutting-edge HPC machines, such as exascale supercomputers, to push the boundaries of what is currently achievable in computational science.
My research also focuses on devising transformative digital technologies that use HPC and AI to augment or replace R&D and manufacturing physical trial-and-error, minimizing time, costs and pollution of the entire lifecycle of industrial and research activities.
