Jibo Sanyal: Connecting leadership science to real-world impact
The first time Jibonananda Sanyal ever logged into a supercomputing system, the landing page told him he could use up to 500 cores, a modest number for some but a significant amount for the early career researcher.
“Up until then I had used two cores, at most,” he said. It wouldn’t be long before he multiplied that number many times over yet again, though.
“Fast forward a few years and I have used something to the effect of 130,000 processors on Titan to run some of our codes,” he said.
Rapidly scaling up seems to be a recurring theme for Sanyal, a researcher at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Since joining ORNL in 2011, Sanyal has been a postdoc, staff scientist and team lead for Scalable and High Performance Geocomputation. Today, he is acting leader of the Computational Urban Sciences group in ORNL’s Computational Sciences and Engineering Division.
