Peter W Doak

Senior Scientific Software Engineer


With experience in software engineering in both industry and academia on HPC, PC, and embedded systems I am uniquely able to use my PhD in physical chemistry and computational research experience to develop and enhance HPC condensed matter and quantum chemistry codes.

I'm interested building world class codes that allow more extensive and rigorous investigation of highly correlated materials, nanostructures, and chemically modified interfaces. Utilizing sustainable and iterative design strategies from modern open source and "data oriented" engineering methodologies I think continuous improvement of existing codes is essential to address new science and HPC environment goals.

We must be open designing and redesigning scientific software to take advantage of often asynchronous concurrency and ever improving computational accelerators.  I think we must also commit to providing code of sufficient clarity and art that new scientists and engineers can contribute to the main line of existing codes.
