Steven Wright is a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Warwick. He is currently working on the Collaborative Computational Project in Plasma Physics with colleagues from several UK universities, the UK Atomic Energy Authority, the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and AWE, developing high performance plasma physics simulation codes. Previously Dr. Wright has collaborated with Rolls-Royce on developing performance models from closed-source applications, specifically focusing on the finite element code, LS-DYNA. Dr. Wright completed his PhD in 2014 at the University of Warwick, in collaboration with AWE plc. and LANL, focusing on the monitoring, analysis and optimisation of I/O in parallel applications.
