TitleChief Technology Officer, Livermore Computing
Bronis R. de Supinski is the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for Livermore Computing (LC) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). In this role, he is responsible for formulating LLNL's large-scale computing strategy and overseeing its implementation. His position requires frequent interaction with high performance computing (HPC) leaders and he oversees several collaborations with the HPC industry as well as academia.
Prior to becoming CTO for LC, Bronis led several research projects in LLNL's Center for Applied Scientific Computing. Most recently, he led the Exascale Computing Technologies (ExaCT) project and co-led the Advanced Scientific Computing (ASC) program's Application Development
Environment and Performance Team (ADEPT). ADEPT is responsible for the development environment, including compilers, tools and run time systems, on LLNL's large-scale systems. ExaCT explored several critical directions related to programming models, algorithms, performance, code correctness and resilience for future large scale systems. He currently continues his interests in these topics, particularly programming models, and serves as the Chair of the OpenMP Language Committee.
Bronis earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Virginia in 1998 and he joined LLNL in July 1998. In addition to his work with LLNL, Bronis is a Professor of Exascale Computing at Queen's University of Belfast. Throughout his career, Bronis has won several awards, including the prestigious Gordon Bell Prize in 2005 and 2006, and R&D 100s, including one for his leadership of a team that developed a novel scalable debugging tool. He is a Fellow of the ACM and the IEEE.
