Gerhard Wellein is a Professor for High Performance Computing at the Department for Computer Science of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and holds a PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Bayreuth. Since 2021 he is the director of the Erlangen National Center for High Performance Computing (NHR@FAU). Gerhard has more than twenty years of experience in teaching HPC techniques to students and scientists from computational science and engineering, is an external trainer in the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), and received the “2011 Informatics Europe Curriculum Best Practices Award” (together with Jan Treibig and Georg Hager) for outstanding teaching contributions. His research interests focus on performance modeling and performance engineering, architecture-specific code optimization, novel parallelization approaches, and hardware-efficient building blocks for sparse linear algebra and stencil solvers.
