My name is Constantinos Evangelinos (yep – one of those long Greek names) and I’m currently a research scientist at the Earth Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences Department of MIT in the Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate. I’m an Applied Mathematician by training (by way of Cambridge University for undergraduate studies and Brown University for graduate studies) and my thesis research was in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Flow-Structure Interactions. Over time I moved over to completely different spatial and time scales for flows (from tens of meters and seconds all the way to thousands of kilometers and years) but the one thing that has remained constant over that time is my interest in high performance computing which is necessary for attacking these problems via simulation. As a graduate student I used to present some of my benchmarking results (involving BLAS timings most of the time) via my webpage. In the Web 2.0 era this blog intends to be a conduit for results (and opinions) about HPC as they apply to scientific and engineering problems.
