Current State

I am currently working as an associate professor in the Ministry of Education Key Lab for Earth System Modeling and Center for Earth System Science in Tsinghua University. I am leading the group of High Performance Geo-Computing (HPGC).

We are looking at different aspects that relate to the theme of providing high performance computing (HPC) solutions for geo-science applications, ranging from the scientific applications at the top, to the mathematical algorithm in the middle, and the computer architectures at the bottom.

In terms of applications, we are mainly looking at two major domains. One is geophysics exploration. We are looking at high performance algorithms and architectures for applications, such as seismic/EM forward modeling, beam migration, reverse time migration, as well as full waveform inversion.

In terms of general algorithm, we are particularly interested in highly scalable sparse matrix solvers and pre-conditioners.

In terms of architectures, we are investigating different types of accelerators. We are looking at data-flow oriented accelerations based on customizable hardware chips, as well as many-core processors, such as Intel MIC and NVIDIA GPGPUs.
