Antônio Tadeu Azevedo Gomes

Short bio

Antônio Tadeu A. Gomes is a researcher at the National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LNCC), Brazil. He is head of the Innovative Parallel numErical Solvers (IPES) Research Group, executive officer of the Brazilian National System for High-Performance Computing (SINAPAD), and coordinator of the Steering Committee of the Santos Dumont supercomputing facility (SDumont). He is also the current deputy coordinator of the LNCC's Graduate Program in Computational Modeling (PPG-LNCC). He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), Brazil, in 2005. His main interests are in the broad area of systems modeling, encompassing networked systems, distributed systems, numerical simulation systems, high-performance computing systems, and machine learning systems. He is particularly interested in the investigation of software architecture techniques that tame the tension between programming productivity, performance optimization, and parallel computing in the development of scientific software. He is the main software architect of the MHM Set of Software Libraries (MSL) for implementing multiscale numerical simulators. He is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). He was recipient of the productivity research award PQ-2 from the Brazilian Research Council (CNPq) from 2010 to 2018.
