- Yifeng Cui is the founding Director of HPGeoC, and an adjunct professor at San Diego State University. He has general research interests in high performance computing, with expertise in parallelization, optimization, and performance evaluation on both massively parallel and vector machines. He is also currently a director of Intel Parallel Computing Center at SDSC. Cui’s groundbreaking work, in collaboration with SCEC researchers led by Dr. Thomas Jordan, include enabling TeraShake and M8, some of the worst-case scenarios on San Andreas fault revealing order-of-magnitude LA wave-guide amplification. His research is supported through highly-competitive research awards, primarily from NSF, SCEC/USGS, Intel, NVIDIA, NCSA and W.M. Keck Foundation. He is PI or co-PIs on several large high performance computing allocations including XSEDE XRAC, DOE INCITE, Blue Waters PRAC, some of the largest awards in the United States. Cui earned his Ph.D. in hydrology from the University of Freiburg, Germany.
