Henry Tufo received his Ph.D. from Brown University in 1998. Henry was a member of the DOE ASC Center for Astrophysical Thermonuclear Flashes at the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory from 1998 to 2002. He is currently a Full Professor of Computer Science at the University of Colorado and Computer Science Section Head at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Henry conducts research in high-performance scientific computing, parallel architectures for petascale computing, Linux clusters, scalable solvers, high-order numerical methods, computational fluid dynamics, and flow visualization. He is co-developer of NEK5000, a state-of-the-art code for simulation of unsteady incompressible flows in complex geometries, and was a recipient of the Gordon Bell award in 1999 and 2000 for demonstrated excellence in high-performance and large-scale parallel computing.
