Lumsdaine is an internationally recognized expert in the
area of HPC who has made important contributions in many
of the constitutive areas of HPC. In particular, he has
contributed in the areas of HPC systems, programming
languages, software libraries, and performance modeling.
His work in HPC has been motivated by data-driven problems
(large-scale graph analytics), as well as more traditional
computational science problems. In addition, outside of
the realm of HPC, he has done seminal work in the area of
computational photography and plenoptic cameras. In his
career, he has published more than 200 articles in top
journals and conferences and holds 15 patents. Dr.
Lumsdaine also has contributed important software
artifacts to the research community, especially in the
area of Message Passing Interface (MPI). He also is active
in a number of standardization efforts with important
contributions to the MPI specification, the C++
programming language, and the Graph 500.
