Our Advisory Board

To reach our goals, we have assembled a Top R&D Team with several of the world’s most renowned scientists in the fields of software engineering, high-performance computing, algorithm design, and hardware systems.

Dr. Jack Dongarra

Distinguished Professor of Computer Science
University of Tennessee

Dr. Dongarra is one of the most cited scientists in the field of High-Performance Software. He was one of the driving forces behind the BLAS and LAPACK, two of the most-commonly-used numerical software libraries worldwide. He has also contributed to the design and implementation of the following software packages and systems: EISPACK, LINPACK, Magma, ScaLAPACK, Netlib, PVM, MPI, NetSolve, Top500, ATLAS, and PAPI, among several others. A Google search for his name renders over 100,000 hits.

Dr. David Bader

Professor and Chair
School of Computational Science and Engineering
Georgia Tech

Dr. Bader is a world authority on graph-theoretic frameworks and author of STINGER, one of the most renowned graph platforms. He is Chair of the School of Computational Science and Engineering, College of Computing, at Georgia Institute of Technology, and Executive Director of High Performance Computing. Dr. Bader also serves as a board member of the Computing Research Association (CRA), on the NSF Advisory Committee on Cyberinfrastructure, on the Council on Competitiveness HPC Advisory Committee, on the IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors, and on the Steering Committees of the IPDPS and HiPC conferences.

Dr. Daniel Abadi

Associate Professor
Computer Science
Yale University

Dr. Abadi is the author of Aurora, a widely popular model for high-performance data stream management in database software. His publications add over 7,000 citations and many of them are considered major milestones for the field of high-performance database software.

Dr. Rajeev Balasubramonian

Associate Professor
School of Computing
University of Utah

Dr. Balasubramonian is a world-class expert on computer memory systems and memory access acceleration in both software and hardware. He is the author of the book “Multi-Core Cache Hierarchies”.

Dr. Rajeev Thakur

Deputy Director
Math and Computer Science Division
Argonne National Laboratory

Dr. Thakur is the main leader of the group that develops the MPICH implementation of MPI at Argonne National Laboratory. MPICH is used for scaling software to very-high-speed multi-processor platforms by hundreds of thousands of users all over the world, and forms the basis of vendor MPI implementations from IBM, Cray, Intel, Microsoft, and Myricom. The majority of the largest supercomputers in the world run MPICH-based MPI implementations. Dr. Thakur has over 7,500 citations worldwide.

Dr. Tim Davis

Professor of Computer Science
Texas A&M University

Dr. Timothy Davis is the author of UMFPACK, and CHOLMOD, two of the world’s fastest pieces of software available today for the difficult problem of solving Sparse Matrix Equations. Most of the sparse solvers used by Matlab have been authored entirely by Dr. Davis. He is a co-author of The MATLAB Primer, a widely popular introduction to MATLAB, and he is also the main contributor to the University of Florida Sparse Matrix Collection, the most widely used repository of sparse matrix data.

Dr. Martin Burtscher

Professor
Department of Computer Science
Texas State University

Dr. Burtscher is the author of several of the world’s fastest pieces of software for the digital compression and decompression of floating-point data. His publications count with several thousands of citations in the field of High-Performance Software.

Dr. David Keyes

Fu Foundation Professor of Applied Mathematics
Columbia University

Dr. David Keyes is the Director of KAUST’s Extreme Computing Research Center, where he was previously the Dean of the Division of Mathematical and Computer Sciences and Engineering. He is one of the driving forces behind the development of extremely-fast large-scale software-based simulation methods that are crucial to make clean fusion energy a reality in the 21st Century.

Dr. Gene Golub (1932-2007)

Professor Golub’s

Dr. Golub, one of the brightest minds in the field of numerical computing and one of the most cited scientists in the field of High-Performance Software, was a valued member of Accelogic’s scientific team, a co-founder of Accelogic’s research program on accelerated linear algebra computing (2005), and an active contributor to Accelogic’s LAPACKrc Research Program. His legacy with Accelogic includes several groundbreaking algorithms for accelerated sparse matrix computations. “We will always remember you, Gene. Your spirit will stay with Accelogic.”
