TomReed-cropTom Reed, a senior solution architect for NVIDIA, will attend PASI on the invitation of lead organizer Prof. Lorena Barba. His role at NVIDIA is supporting the US Department of Defense and Intelligence Community, and he is focused on awareness and understanding of how GPU technologies are changing what is possible in that realm. Prior to joining NVIDIA, Mr. Reed spent 20 years with Silicon Graphics where his tenure included roles in systems engineering, benchmarking & performance engineering, software development, and professional services.

Mr. Reed is looking forward to learning more about the needs of the atmospheric- and ocean-modeling fields, and about the community codes that are used there. He will interact with PASI participants as they develop their group projects, and answer any questions about using GPUs in their work.

We look forward to discussing with him about the latest developments in high-performance computing hardware and the role that GPUs could play for improving performance of ocean-modeling codes.
