Dr. Bernd Mohr

Senior Scientist, Jülich Supercomputing Center, Germany

Dr.-Ing. Bernd Mohr started to design and develop tools for performance analysis of parallel programs already with his diploma thesis (1987) at the University of Erlangen in Germany, and continued this in his Ph.D. work (1987 to 1992). During a three year Postdoc position at the University of Oregon, he designed and implemented the original TAU performance analysis framework.

Since 1996 he is a senior scientist at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany's largest multi-disciplinary research center and home of the most parallel machine of the world, a 294,912 core BlueGene/P. He is the author of several dozen conference and journal articles about performance analysis and tuning of parallel programs. Since 2000, he is the team leader for the group "Programming Environments and Performance Optimization". Besides being responsible for user support and training in regard to parallel programming at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), he is leading the Scalasca performance tool efforts in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Felix Wolf.
