Dr Stephen Booth
I graduated from New College Oxford in Physics, in the summer of 1987. And completed my PhD (also in Physics) at Edinburgh University in 1992. I have been heavily involved with parallel computing since I arrived in Edinburgh in 1987, both in the Physics Department and later in EPCC. My current interests include:
- Random number generators
- Performance tuning and just about everything else.
I am currently the Principal Architect within the EPCC Applications Group. Most of my time is spent supporting the National HPC services run by EPCC. This includes research into Exascale computing and developing the SAFE administration and accounting software.
I am the author of the xmountains fractal landscape program.
