My research focuses on the research and development of cluster systems. With my colleagues, I have designed and built several cluster systems, including one TOP 500 supercomputer. I also attempt to apply high-performance computing technologies to the fields of computational science and engineering. My research group has proposed many high-efficiency parallel algorithms for cluster systems. I have designed a resource management architecture and several QoS-assurance algorithms for grid computing.
The books I wrote,MPI Parallel Programming, andGrid Computing(as a co-author),have big influence on China's high-performance computing field.
