Dr. Pavan Balaji holds appointments as a Computer Scientist and Group Lead at the Argonne National Laboratory, as an Institute Fellow of the Northwestern-Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering at Northwestern University, and as a Research Fellow of the Computation Institute at the University of Chicago. His research interests include parallel programming models and runtime systems for communication and I/O, modern system architecture (multi-core, accelerators, complex memory subsystems, high-speed networks), and cloud computing systems.
He has nearly 100 publications in these areas and has delivered nearly 120 talks and tutorials at various conferences and research institutes. He is a recipient of several awards including the U.S. Department of Energy Early Career award in 2012, Crain's Chicago 40 under 40 award in 2013, Los Alamos National Laboratory Director's Technical Achievement award in 2005, Ohio State University Outstanding Researcher award in 2005, five best paper awards and various others. He serves as the worldwide chairperson for the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC). He has also served as a chair or editor for nearly 50 journals, conferences and workshops, and as a technical program committee member in numerous conferences and workshops. He is a senior member of the IEEE and a professional member of the ACM.

I am looking for postdoctoral/predoctoral researchers and graduate research assistants, to join my group and work on programming models, runtime systems, fault tolerance, GPUs and other accelerators, and various other topics in high performance computing (please see my research page for more information). If you are interested, please send me an email.
I am the worldwide chair for the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC). IEEE TCSC is responsible for sponsoring and organizing many conferences including IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing (CCGrid), IEEE Cluster, and many others.
If you are interested in participating in this committee, please send me an email. If you would like to contribute a short 500-1000 word (3-5 paragraphs) blog post on a topic related to scalable computing, send me an email as well. More information on blog contribution is available here.
