Sudip Dosanjh is the Director of the National Energy Research Scientific Computing (NERSC) Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. NERSC’s mission is to accelerate scientific discovery at the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science through high performance computing and extreme data analysis. NERSC deploys leading-edge computational and data resources for over 4,500 users from a broad range of disciplines. NERSC will be partnering with computer companies to develop and deploy pre-exascale and exascale systems during the next decade.
Previously, Dr. Dosanjh headed extreme-scale computing at Sandia National Laboratories. He was co-director of the Los Alamos/Sandia Alliance for Computing at the Extreme-Scale from 2008-2012. He also served on the U.S. Department of Energy’s Exascale Initiative Steering Committee for several years.
Dr. Dosanjh had a key role in establishing co-design as a methodology for reaching exascale computing. He has numerous publications on exascale computing, co-design, computer architectures, massively parallel computing, and computational science.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in engineering physics in 1982, his master’s degree (1984) and his Ph.D. (1986) in mechanical engineering, all from the University of California, Berkeley.
