Hi! I’m Sanath! I hail from the historic city of Mysore, India! I’m currently a Ph.D. student at the Stuttgart center of Simulation Science (SC SimTech), Universität Stuttgart. Previously, I was an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) scholar studying Computational Mechanics at Universität Stuttgart, and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona. I completed my Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering from BITS Pilani – Goa Campus, India.
I had the incredible opportunity of undertaking my Bachelor’s thesis at the Barcelona supercomputing center, which was my first formal introduction to HPC. This sparked an interest and exhibited immense potential with my brief experience. This was when I met two students who were then part of the summer of HPC. From a brief conversation, I was hooked and decided to do it myself in the future. And this was back in 2016! Flashforward to almost 4 years later, here I am, finally!
Although under very strange circumstances of a global pandemic, I am quite thrilled to be participating in the summer of HPC 2020. I will be working on project 2023 – Improved performance with hybrid programming at the Vienna Scientific Cluster. In the coming weeks, I will share regular updates on my progress, thoughts, and frustrations. I hope you join me on this journey! And finally, I leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
