Robert Chisholm

Research Software Engineer/Research Associate in Large Scale Simulation

Robert is a Research Software Engineer in the process of completing his PhD at the University of Sheffield. He specialises in GPU accelerated computing and complex system simulations, following his PhD’s focus on improving the performance of spatial communication in GPU accelerated algorithms.

He is currently working on the PRIMAGE project, which proposes an open cloud-based platform to support decision making in the clinical management of two paediatric cancers. In particular, wokring towards the development of a cell scale model of neuroblastoma to be scaled across multiple GPUs and distributed HPC resources.

He is also contributing towards the new version of FLAMEGPU software framework, facilitating wider access to complex systems modelling on GPUs.
