Paul Woodward

College: Liberal Arts and Sciences
Award year: 2007-2008

Adapted PPM gas dynamics applications to run on a novel computer architecture, the IBM Cell processor. During the fellowship he will work with NCSA's Innovative Systems Laboratory and with NCSA chief science officer Bob Wilhelmson, an atmospheric scientist, with the goal of better understanding how applications will need to be adapted for future petascale computing systems.
