Energy efficient parallel computing, with applications in large scale fluid simulations and machine learning 

The Gupta group has been developing new algorithms for reducing time and energy consumption in parallel computing with interesting results that have caught the attention of funding agencies such as NSF, ARO, and DOE. Robert will be implementing some of the algorithms on GPU machines with the goal of demonstrating significant (30-50%) energy savings on GPU based codes.
