Brandon Shroyer: URCS Grad Student
Captured here in a rare clean-shaven moment.
I am a graduate student in the Systems group of the University of Rochester Computer Science Department. My research interests include computational science, parallel/distributed algorithms, heterogeneous systems, and resource-aware scheduling.
- M.S. in Computer Science, University of Rochester, 2012.
- B.S. in Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, 2011.
- B.S. in Computer Science, Case Western Reserve University, 2003.
- Wrote I/O, and visualization routines for AstroBEAR, a numerical solver developed by the UR Computational Astrophysics group.
- Planned, developed for and managed a complete overhaul of AstroBEAR. This effort took about a year and involved a postdoc, four astrophysics graduate students, two undergraduates, and a collaboration with Chen Ding and Bin Bao.
- Developed OSI-like messaging architecture for AstroBEAR.
- Developed a production control system for a metal fabrication plant in Rochester, NY. The system handled event processing for 40 Davenport machines, accumulating production data and shutting down machines with quality or maintenance issues.
