Dr. Oliver FuhrerSenior Scientist, MeteoSwiss
Dr. Oliver Fuhrer is a senior scientist in the modeling group of the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology MeteoSwiss, Zurich. He has over 12 years experience in the fields of high performance computing, regional climate simulation and numerical weather prediction. He has applied and developed parallel software and conducted research starting on vector machines and later on massively parallel architectures at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre. Recently, Fuhrer acted as a PI or co-PI on three projects within the Swiss High Performance and High Productivity Computing (HP2C) initiative and Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) and has had the scientific lead for developing a hardware oblivious and performance portable implementation of the dynamical core of the COSMO model. These efforts have resulted in an implementation of COSMO capable of running production simulations on hybrid architectures.
