Our research

We conduct research in the areas of developing and applying parallel programming models on large scale applications, exploring heterogeneous computing platforms and investigating Deep Learning techniques on different hardware.

Exploring language features for high-level programming models to port scientific legacy applications such as molecular dynamics, NGS and nuclear reactor codes on highly parallel large scale systems

Exploring parallelization of irregular algorithms, specifically MIT sFFT, on different platforms

Building validation & verification suites to validate the implementations of programming models OpenACC 2.5 and OpenMP 4.5 and onwards

Developing accelerator benchmark suite to stress test hardware, in collaboration with Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation High Performance Group (SPEC HPG)

Exploring varieties of hardware architecture and its suitability to port Exascale Computing Project (ECP) CANcer Distributed Learning Environment (CANDLE) benchmark pilot case studies

Robbie, Kyle, Sanhu, and Jose Travel to Brookhaven National Laboratory for GPU Hackathon

on September 6, 2017

On June 5-9, 2017, CRPL’s Robert Searles, Kyle Friedline, Sanhu Li, and José Monsalve Díaz traveled to Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) to participate in the GPU Hackathon hosted there. BNL hosted this event in conjunction with NVIDIA, The Portland Group (PGI), and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Robbie and Kyle acted as mentors for their teams, providing insight using their extensive GPU programming experience. Robbie served as the mentor for Team Uduh: a combination of members from University of Delaware and University of Houston.
