Dr Nick Brown is a research fellow at EPCC with research interests in HPC, data engineering, parallel programming language design, compilers and runtimes. He is a work package leader in VESTEC, an EU FET HPC project, which aims to fuse HPC with real-time data for urgent decision making. He has worked with both industry and academia, on a number of large scale parallel codes including developing an atmospheric model used by the UK climate and weather communities. Nick is also interested in the application of novel architectures, including FPGAs and micro-cores, in accelerating HPC and data-science codes, and how this might impact supercomputer architectures in the future. Nick is a course organiser on EPCC's MSc in HPC and data science courses, as well as supervising PhD and MSc students.
