Dr. Christopher P. Stone is a software development and consultant in the areas of high-performance computing and computational science. He earned his BS in Physics from Wofford College in 1998 and his PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2003. Since then, he has held several research and academic positions including visiting assistant professor and research scientist/engineer. In 2007, he founded Computational Science & Engineering, LLC, a private scientific research and development firm working mostly on federally funded R&D projects in the areas of high-performance/parallel computing with computational science applications. Dr. Stone has been involved with the US DoD High Performance Modernization Office (HPCMP) Productivity Enhancement, Technology, Transfer, and Training (PETTT) program as a consultant since 2012. In this capacity, Dr. Stone provides assistance to user and application developers in performance optimization, algorithm refactoring, and transitioning to next-gen parallel architectures. Dr. Stone’s research interests include many-core parallel processing on hardware accelerators (e.g., graphics processing units) and vector-friendly algorithms for computationally intensive applications, particularly for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and combustion modeling applications.
