Tom Ashby

Senior research engineer at Exascience Lab (via IMEC)

Tom Ashby studied for both his undergraduate degree and PhD at the University of Edinburgh. The PhD was on the topic of using high level languages for scientific computation, and the work was carried out in cooperation with the Particle Physics group. After completing his studies he did a post-doc on simulating lightweight hardware for cache coherence on shared memory platforms, and then took a position at IMEC.

At IMEC he has worked on program transformation tools to support practical combined functional and loop parallelism for software on multicore embedded systems. After the results of that project were transferred to a large Japanese conglomerate, he moved to working on hyperspectral camera system design and image processing using machine learning techniques. He is currently part of the Flanders Exascience lab ( working with Intel on the performance and reliability challenges for scientific simulation on exascale machines, and the computational demands of future life sciences and medical workloads.
