Dr. David J. Hardy is a Senior Research Programmer at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He leads the development of NAMD, an award-winning parallel molecular dynamics code designed for high-performance simulation of large biomolecular systems that, through the use of Charm++ parallel objects, is able to scale to hundreds of thousands of CPU cores and tens of thousands of GPUs. He obtained his PhD in Computer Science in 2006 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research interests include fast methods for calculating electrostatics, numerical integration methods suitable for Hamiltonian systems, and GPU computing.
