Manager, Advanced Compiler Technology
Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY USA



I am a Principal Research Staff Member at IBM, doing research on Compiler Technology. My major interest is in discovering techniques for improving the performance of programs written in C/C++ and Fortran, especially in the arena of High Performance Computing. My focus recently has been on exploiting OpenMP 4 for applications running on OpenPower systems with GPU acceleration.
