Short Biography

My work is based on the application of high performance computing (HPC) for symbolic domains rather than the common floating-point domains. My current focus is on solving large scale combinatorial search problems from the field of computational algebra (specifically finite geometry).

As a Computer Scientist my main interest comes from studying what parallelism/programming techniques best suit these domains and applying engineering effort to test these hypotheses. I currently maintain and extend a task parallelism framework for the Haskell programming language known as HdpH which is designed with interfaces to computational algebra systems in mind (specifically GAP5).
