Christian Trott is a high performance computing expert with exceptional experience in designing and implementing scientific software for GPU and ManyCore architectures. He leads the Kokkos C++ Performance Portability Programming Model development team and is a member of the ISO C++ Standards Committee focusing on future C++ capabilities for parallel and heterogeneous computing.
His previous scientific work focused on computational material research using ab-initio calculations, molecular dynamic simulations and Monte Carlo methods for investigations of ion-conducting glass materials. Christian’s specialties include: C++, Kokkos, OpenMP, CUDA, OpenCL and MPI software development. Parallel algorithm development, performance portability and molecular dynamics simulations.
When Christian is not working on advancing HPC software to the next level, he spends time with his dogs in the New Mexico wilderness training dogs https://www.spiritdogtraining.com/.
