Ahmad Maroof Karimi NLN

HPC Operational Data Scientist

Ahmad Maroof Karimi is a staff member as an HPC Operational Data Scientist in Analytics and AI Methods at Scale Group. He is currently working on data-driven modeling and analysis of HPC operations: The first one is the I/O analysis and modeling of HPC workloads. The other project is the analysis and modeling of power and energy consumption by the HPC facility. These projects will provide deeper insight into monitoring the HPC operations and offer the opportunity to improve the performances. He is also working towards building automated monitoring tools to facilitate the HPC users, HPC administrators and enable architectures in future procurements.  
Before joining ORNL, Ahmad completed his Ph.D. in Computer Science at CWRU, Cleveland, Ohio, in October 2020. His Ph.D. dissertation titled “Data science and machine learning to predict degradation and power of photovoltaic systems: convolutional and spatiotemporal graph neural networks” focused on classifying degradation mechanism and performance prediction of a photovoltaic power plant. He received his M.S. degree from the University of Toledo, Ohio, and B.S. degree from Aligarh Muslim University, India. Ahmad has also worked in the I.T. industry as a software programmer and database designer.
