James Schloss

James Schloss is a postdoc in the Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climates at MIT. Schloss studies complicated physical systems with HPC methods, including GPU computing. During his PhD, he focused on massively parallel implementations of superfluid simulations on graphics processing units and will be using this expertise on largescale climate models for the Climate Modeling Alliance. His focus will be on writing and optimizing discontinuous Galerkin and timestepping methods for modeling the ocean on distributed graphics processing units and high-performance computers using the Julia language. Schloss has a PhD from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University and a bachelor’s degree in Physics from Auburn University.
