Research interests

I am a Lecturer in the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester and hold a part-time position in the Scientific Computing Department (SCD) at STFC, Daresbury. My research is application-driven and much of my research has been undertaken in collaboration with computational scientists in application areas such as Earth System Modelling (including the U.K. Met Office) and, previously, computational chemistry and biology. My aim is to apply my experience in high performance computing and software engineering for (principally) scientific computing to new application domains. I am also interested in techniques and tools to support flexible coupled modelling in scientific computing and in performance modelling techniques for large-scale heterogeneous HPC systems, where enegy efficiency is increasingly key.

 Further details can be found on  my web page. My current research interests are:

(i) Techniques, tools and methods for developing high performance applications for for parallel machines, including performance analysis, performance modelling and performance improvement.

(ii) Software architectures for the flexible composition and deployment of scientific coupled modelling.

(iii) Performance control techniques for “component”-based applications executing on distributed computing resources

Collaboration with Scientists and engineers is a key feature of my research and I, and my colleague, Rupert Ford (at STFC), have a long standing relationship with the Met Office in the U.K., with the Earth Systems Modelling (ESM) community in the U.K., Europe and the US.
