Accelerating Scientific Applications with FPGAs

 

Dr. Storaasli joined the Future Technologies Group in the Computer Science and Mathematics Division in 2005 as a Distinguished Research Scientist.to explore new algorithms and architectures that harness the power of FPGAs for future scientific supercomputing. This includes innovative methods for rapid solution of large systems of matrix equations on supercomputers and FPGAs. Prior to ORNL Dr. Storaasli served as a senior research scientist in the Computational Structures and Materials Branch at NASA�s Langley Research Center. His research focused on developing new parallel computational algorithms to solve large systems of matrix equations, harnessing reconfigurable hypercomputers for large-scale analyses (Structures, Electromagnetics and Acoustics), fast eigenvalue analysis and FPGA-based HPC computations (image compression & robotic applications). Dr. Storaasli also taught Parallel Processing Graduate Courses in the Department of Physics, Computer Science and Engineering at Christopher Newport University in which his students use VIVA in addition to traditional MPI. He also taught graduate courses in Computer Science at George Washington University.
