Fred Streitz leads efforts to develop HPC applications that push the limits of leadership-class computational capability to address forefront scientific problems. On four occasions, he has led multidisciplinary/multi-institutional teams recognized as Gordon Bell Prize Finalists for significant achievement in supercomputing.
His current focus, as Director of the HPC Innovation Center, is broadening the use of high performance computing by U.S. industry to promote global competitiveness.
Dr. Streitz sits on Steering Committees for Harvard's IACS and Argonne's ICiS, and serves as the Associate Editor for the International Journal of High Performance Computing Applications. Prior to joining Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the Physical and Life Sciences Directorate in 1999, Fred held positions as a National Research Council Fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory and an Assistant Professor at Auburn University.
Fred earned a Ph.D. in Physics from the Johns Hopkins University and a B.S. in Physics from Harvey Mudd College.
