Dr Alan Gray
Alan's research career began in the area of theoretical physics: his Ph.D. thesis was awarded the UK-wide Ogden Prize in 2004 for the best thesis in particle physics phenomenology. He continued this work under a University Fellowship at The Ohio State University, before moving to EPCC in 2005. His current research focuses on the exploitation of GPUs to the benefit of real scientific and industrial applications: he has a particular interest in the programming of large-scale GPU-accelerated supercomputers, and also in the area of performance portability (where he has recently developed the targetDP performance portable programming model for the Ludwig application). He was awarded the status of CUDA Fellow in 2014. Alan leads EPCC's GPU related activities, and is involved in management, teaching and supervision for the EPCC MSc in High Performance Computing.
