Biographical Sketch

Richard Gerber is NERSC's Senior Science Advisor and Head of the HPC Department. Richard has been involved with leading-edge High Performance Computing systems for almost 30 years, including early Cray vector systems at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), the Connection Machine while a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at NASA-Ames Research Center, and many generations of distributed-memory parallel computers as a staff member at NERSC since 1996. He holds a B.S. in Physics from the University of Florida, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

At NERSC he has been at the forefront at providing scalable HPC consulting services to NERSC's users and gathering HPC needs from scientific communities and getting them implemented at the center. As HPC Department Head he oversees the Advanced Technologies, Application Performance, Computational Systems, and User Engagement Groups at NERSC. He is currently one of the leaders of the ASCR Exascale Requirements Reviews with scientists and program managers from all DOE Office of Science program offices. As Senior Science Advisor he coordinates science outreach and engagement efforts and helps communicate the value of scientific computing and science in general.

Richard is keenly interested in automatic collection of HPC performance and runtime data and making it available on the web to help users monitor, debug, and optimize their applications.

Richard was the Deputy Project Lead on the "NERSC 7" procurement of the NERSC Edison Cray XC30 system.

Richard has a Ph. D. in physics, specializing in computational astrophysics, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After obtaining his Ph. D., he completed a National Research Council postdoctoral fellowship at NASA Ames Research Center. His specialty is using N-body and Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics to study colliding galaxies, "ring" galaxies in particular. He has a broad interest in science and particularly in the physical sciences.

The current high-performance computing revolution provides opportunity for major increases in computational power over the next several years, if it can be harnessed. This transition from simply increasing the single-processor and network performance to a different architectural paradigms forces application programmers to rethink the basic models of parallel programming from both the language and problem division standpoints. One of the major computing facilities available to researchers in fusion energy is the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center. As the mission computing center for DOE, Office of Science, NERSC is tasked with helping users to overcome the challenges of this revolution both through the use of new parallel constructs and languages and also by enabling a broader user community to take advantage of multi-core performance. We discuss the programming model challenges facing researchers in fusion and plasma physics in for a variety of simulations ranging from particle-in-cell to fluid-gyrokinetic and MHD models.
