Jeffrey S. Vetter
Jeffrey S. Vetter, Ph.D., has a
joint appointment between Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and the Georgia
Institute of Technology (GT). At ORNL, Vetter is a Distinguished R&D Staff
Member, and the founding group leader of the Future
Technologies Group in the Computer Science and Mathematics Division. At
GT, Vetter is a Joint Professor in the Computational
Science and Engineering School of the College of Computing, the
Principal Investigator for the NSF Track 2D Experimental Computing XSEDE
Facility, named Keeneland, for large scale heterogeneous computing using graphics
processors, and the Director of the NVIDIA CUDA
Center of Excellence.
Vetter earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He
joined ORNL in 2003, after stints as a computer scientist and project leader at
Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory, and postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The coherent thread through his research is developing rich architectures and
software systems that solve important, real-world high performance computing
problems. Currently, Vetter's research addresses problems in analyzing new
architectures for HPC using measurement, modeling, and simulation. In
particular, he has been investigating the effectiveness of next-generation
architectures, such as graphics processors, massively multithreaded processors,
non-volatile memory systems, heterogeneous multicore processors, and
field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), for key applications. His recent books,
entitled "Contemporary High Performance Computing: From Petascale toward
Exascale (Vols. 1 and 2)," survey the international landscape of HPC.
Vetter is a Senior Member of the IEEE, and a Distinguished
Scientist Member of the ACM.
Vetter, as part of an interdisciplinary team from Georgia Tech, NYU,
and ORNL, was awarded
Bell Prize in 2010.
Also, his work has won awards at major conferences: Best Paper
Awards at the International Parallel and Distributed Processing
Symposium (IPDPS) and EuroPar, Best Student Paper Finalist at
SC14, and Best Presentation at EASC 2015.
