He is also currently a director of Intel Parallel Computing Center at SDSC. He is internationally recognized for his leading role in optimizing the high performance regional-scale earthquake modeling software. Examples of his HPC work include enabling TeraShake and M8, revealing order-of-magnitude Los Angeles wave-guide amplification. He is the recipients of 2009/2011 SciDAC OASCR awards, 2013 IDC HPC Innovation Excellence award, 2015 NVIDIA Global Impact award, and a 2010 ACM Gordon Bell finalist. Cui earned his Ph.D. in hydrology from the University of Freiburg, Germany.
| Alexander Breuer received his diploma in mathematics in 2011 from Technische Universität München (TUM) and successfully finished his doctoral studies at the Chair of Scientific Computing of TUM in 2015. Alexander’s research covers optimizations in the entire simulation pipeline. This includes node-level performance leveraging SIMD-paradigms, hybrid and heterogeneous parallelization up to machine-size and co-design of numerics and large-scale optimizations. In 2014 Alexander was honored with an ACM/IEEE-CS George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship for his doctoral research project. In addition he and his collaborators have been awarded with the PRACE ISC Award and nominated as ACM Gordon Bell finalists for their outstanding end-to-end performance reengineering of the seismic software package SeisSol.
