I have worked on a number of HPC-related projects:
- PRACE - a pan-European project preparing for petascale Tier-0 HPC resources.
- OHM - Offshore Hydrocarbon Mapping is a small company in Aberdeen. We optimised and parallelised code using OpenMP.
- Edikt2 - Edikt2 is a project to promote research computing around the University of Edinburgh. I organise the quarterly workshops and have given many talks promoting the computational resources that Edinburgh academics have access to.
- Cell Processor - I, along with John Spray (summer intern and MSc student) and Adrian Jackson, carry out research into the programmability of the Cell Processor in scientific applications. See publications.
- HDF5 - I carried out a short project looking into optimising HDF5 access on HPCx. I am also the HDF5 "expert" on HPCx.
I am one of two authors of a geological modelling code, GPM. This code originated in Schlumberger. The main author of the code is Dan Tetzlaff. GPM simulates both silciclastic and carbonate sedimentation. I wrote the carbonate sedimentation portion of the code.
- I was part of the STEER project which tracked student's use of online resources for four undergraduate courses.
- GeologyRocks - I run an online "textbook" and community that attempts to promote the Earth Sciences.
I have written a few bits of software to help with creating supertrees. See Software. We're currently writing this up and a release has been made on SourceForge.
I'm also leading a project on looking into parallelising aspect of 'R', the statistical programming environment. More information is here.

Some bits of software that I've written/been involved with. No warranty, support, etc available.
