Since my student years I have been interested in measuring the performance of parallel computers. I have worked on well over twenty EU and UK funded projects covering a wide range of topics such as benchmarking of HPC, security modelling and semantic research. By joining the SciML group at STFC-RAL I'll be working on my favourite topic of benchmarking machine learning applications and investigating the performance of large scale GPU systems.
