Obtained degree of Bachelor of Science with Honours,
at The University of Adelaide, 1994.
Currently studying for degree of Doctor of Philosophy
in Astronomy and Astrophysics, at Mount Stromlo and Siding
Spring Observatories, The Australian National University.
John K. Salmon
received his Ph.D. from Caltech in 1991. His
research is in parallel scientific computation, and the use of massively
parallel supercomputers for applications in astrophysics and fluid
dynamics. In 1992 he shared the Gordon Bell prize for achievement
in large scale computing. Recently, he has been studying out-of-core
techniques and the use of commodity processors to achieve cost-effective
has been engaged in research related to parallel
computer architecture, system software, and evaluation for more than
a decade. He was a key contributor to the design, implementation,
and testing of several experimental parallel architectures.
His current research focuses on innovative approaches to
achieving peta-scale (i.e., operations per second
and/or bytes of storage) computing.
The Hybrid Technology Multi Threaded (HTMT)
combines advanced technologies from superconducting logic, optical
switching, processor-in-memory fabrication, multithreaded programming
and optical holographic storage into a single system.
On a more mundane level,
he has also pioneered the Beowulf approach to commodity parallel processing.
Since completing his Ph.D. as a
Hertz Fellow from MIT in 1984, Dr. Sterling has done research
at the Harris Corporation's Advanced Technology Department,
the IDA Supercomputing Research Center and the USRA Center for Excellence
in Space Data and Information Sciences at the Goddard Space Flight Center.
He now holds a joint research appointment at the
California Institute of Technology and the NASA Jet Propulsion.
He holds six patents, is the co-author of two books and has
published dozens of papers in the field of parallel computing.
