Rupert W. Ford
Rupert Ford is a Research Fellow in the School of Computer Science's Centre for Novel Computing at the University of Manchester. His main research interests are the use of feedback techniques in parallel performance engineering and the performance of scalable shared memory architectures.
He has participated in 4 EC funded projects, 3 EPSRC projects (for one of which, ECoViSM, he was Co-author) a series of MOD funded projects (with the Met Office, for which he is the Investigator) and has consulted for Fujitsu U.K. He has published 19 papers in international journals and conferences, and software he has developed is in use at the Met Office, in the NAG parallel library and at British Aerospace.
He was also co-chair for the architecture track of Europar in 1998 and is currently local chair for the Load balance and scheduling track of Europar 2001.
Main Research Interests:
- architectures for flexible coupled modelling
- interactive simulation
- high performance computing
- performance engineering and performance control
