Christian Engelmann is a Senior Computer Scientist and the Intelligent Systems and Facilities Group Leader at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He holds a Ph.D. and a M.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Reading, UK, and a Dipl.-Ing. (FH) in Computer Systems Engineering from the University of Applied Sciences Berlin. He has more than 20 years experience in research and development for next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) systems. His research aims at computer science challenges for HPC, such as dependability, scalability, and portability. Dr. Engelmann’s primary expertise is in HPC resilience, i.e., providing efficiency and correctness in the presence of faults, errors, and failures. His ongoing research program targets computer science challenges in machine-in-the-loop operational intelligence for smart systems, instruments and facilities. His secondary expertise is in HPC hardware/software co-design through lightweight simulation of extreme-scale systems with millions of processor cores to study the impact of hardware properties on application performance. He has published over 100 papers in renowned refereed journals and proceedings of international conferences. He received the 2015 US Department of Energy Early Career Award for research in resilience design patterns for extreme scale HPC.
