Dr. Barbara Chapman is a Professor of Applied Mathematics and Statistics and Computer Science at Stony Brook University, where she is affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Computational Science. She also directs Computer Science and Mathematics Research at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Dr. Chapman has performed research on parallel programming interfaces and the related implementation technology for over 20 years and has moreover engaged in efforts to develop community standards for parallel programming, including OpenMP, OpenACC, and OpenSHMEM. Her research group created the state-of-the-art OpenUH compiler that enabled practical experimentation with parallel language extensions and the corresponding implementation techniques. The group also created a reference implementation of the library-based OpenSHMEM programming interface. Dr. Chapman has co-authored over 200 papers and two books. She obtained a B.Sc. with 1st Class Honours in Mathematics from Canterbury and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Queen’s University of Belfast.
