Dorian has been a Computer Science professor at the University of New Mexico and co-director of the Scalable Systems Lab since January, 2009. His broad research areas are high performance computing (HPC) and large scale distributed systems. More specifically, he studies efficient, resilient HPC system software and tools that allow system non-experts to harness the power of high-performance systems in scalable, efficient, reliable ways. He enjoys strong and active collaborations with the Los Alamos, Livermore and Sandia National Laboratories and Cray, Inc. -- these collaborations lend the privilege of working with world class scientists on the largest systems in the world. In part due to such collaborations, his research projects were selected as Top 100 R&D technologies in 1999 and 2011.
Dorian received a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin and an M.S. from the University of Tennessee, both in Computer Science. He received a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from Regis University in Denver, CO and an A.S. in Physics, Math and Chemistry from St. John's College in the Central American country of Belize, where he grew up.
