Sverre JarpCTO CERN-OpenLab, CERN
Sverre Jarp has been working in computing at CERN for over 35 years and
has held both managerial and technical positions promoting advanced but
cost-effective computing solutions for the Laboratory. In 2001-02 he
spent a sabbatical year at HP Labs (Palo Alto, USA). Upon his return, he
started working as the Chief Technology Officer in the CERN openlab.
His current fields of interest are, in particular, multi-threaded
programming and performance tuning, but he works hard to keep involved
in all the technical activities in openlab. Sverre holds a degree in
Theoretical Physics from the Norwegian University of Science and
Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim.
