Alumnus Bader Cofounds CSE School at Georgia Tech

Alumnus David A. Bader was in the news recently for his role in cofounding the new School of Computational Science and Engineering within the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology. Bader first took on the initiative to found this school in 2005 with Richard Fujimoto and Haesun Park. Currently supporting sixty graduate students, the program focuses on high performance computing, computational data analytics, modeling and simulation, and computational algorithms.

A Full Professor and Executive Director for High Performance Computing at Georgia Tech, Dr. Bader is a lead scientist in the DARPA Ubiquitous High Performance Computing (UHPC) program. He received his Ph.D. in 1996 from the University of Maryland. As a graduate student, Dr. Bader was advised by Professor Joseph JaJa (ECE/UMIACS). Bader founded and served as president of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Student Association (ECEGSA) while he attended school at Maryland.

is research is supported through highly-competitive research awards, primarily from NSF, NIH, DARPA, and DOE. Dr. Bader serves on the Research Advisory Council for Internet2, the Steering Committees of the IPDPS and HiPC conferences, the General Chair of IPDPS 2010 and Chair of SIAM PP12. He is an associate editor for several high impact publications including the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (JPDC), ACM Journal of Experimental Algorithmics (JEA), IEEE DSOnline, Parallel Computing, and Journal of Computational Science.

Dr. Bader's interests are at the intersection of high-performance computing and real-world applications, including computational biology and genomics and massive-scale data analytics. He is also a leading expert on multicore, manycore, and multithreaded computing for data-intensive applications such as those in massive-scale graph analytics. He has co-authored over 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, and his main areas of research are in parallel algorithms, combinatorial optimization, massive-scale social networks, and computational biology and genomics.

Prof. Bader is an IEEE Fellow, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award recipient, and has received numerous industrial awards from IBM, NVIDIA, Intel, Sun Microsystems, and Microsoft Research.
