About Me


I hold 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. I lead the Programming Models and Runtime Systems group at Argonne. My research interests include parallel programming models and runtime systems for communication and I/O on extreme-scale supercomputing systems, modern system architecture, cloud computing systems, data-intensive computing, and big-data sciences.
