I am Deputy Director of the Data Science and Learning Division at Argonne National Laboratory, where I am also a Senior Computer Scientist. My research interests are in high-performance computing, data science, scalable parallel I/O, parallel programming models, communication libraries, and runtime systems.

I am involved in the Exascale Computing Project (ECP). I was the Director of Software Technology for ECP from March 2016 to October 2017 and continue as the lead for the Programming Models and Runtimes area in ECP Software Technology, which I have been since June 2016.
