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.

NSF SHF: Exploring programming language features applicable to real-world applications (NSF)

NGS: Building a portable and fast DNA sequence alignment tool

Exascale computing Project (ECP) SOLLVE PROJECT: Building validation & verification (V&V) suites to validate the implementations of OpenMP 4.5 offloading features

ORNL CAAR: Exploring programming model and workflow for PiConGPU, in collaboration with ORNL and HZDR Germany

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

OPENACC TESTSUITE: Building an OpenACC Validation & Verification (V&V) testsuite to validate implementations of OpenACC 2.5 features

NEMOURS/ALFRED I. duPont Hospital for Children: Building predictive models for Sickle Cell Disease and Pediatric Cancer datasets: Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning

NCAR: Acceleration of the MURaM Solar Physics Model using GPUs and OpenACC

CRPL students write about their week-long GPU hackathon experience at the Brookhaven National Lab, 2018

on November 7, 2018

Four students from CRPL@ UDEL Mauricio Ferrato (Ph.D. student), Eric Wright (Ph.D. student), Robert Searles (Ph.D student), Kyle Friedline (Undergraduate student BSCS) attended the 2018 Brookathon - Brookhaven National Laboratory GPU hackathon held at BNL on September 17–21, 2018 as one of the 2 mentors for four hackathon teams. They have also served as mentors in the Boulder, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Pawsey Supercomputing Center and NASA hackathons. What do they have to say?

Two CRPL Research Poster Submissions Accepted for SC18

on November 7, 2018

CRPL’s PhD Students Eric Wright and Mauricio Ferrato have a poster titled “Estimating Molecular Dynamics Chemical Shift with GPUs” accepted for the SC18 conference in Dallas. The research project was started as an undergrad project under the Vertically Integrated Project (VIP) program and consisted of accelerating a chemical shift prediction application called PPM_One using the parallel programming model OpenACC. CRPL’s undergraduate student Thomas Huber was also involved in this project. The application originally existed as a serial application only and porting it to OpenACC allowed to test for both multicore and GPU acceleration.
