Adrian Jackson is a senior research fellow at EPCC, The University of Edinburgh. He has a long history of research in HPC, from optimizing applications for specific hardware through to designing and developing middleware for new systems. He has spent recent years researching non-volatile memory and advanced data storage systems, and also heavily involved in hardware optimization projects, such as the UK Excalibur FPGA testbed in the UK. Research experience across a range of different areas in high performance computing provides the basis for current work on compute node performance capacity and automatic communication libraries designed to exploit network capacity for improved application performance.
