I am a computer scientist specializing in the design and development of scalable methods of information storage, movement, and management for data-intensive high-performance computation.
Phil Carns is a computer scientist in the Mathematics and Computer Science division of Argonne National Laboratory. He is also an adjunct associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Clemson University and a fellow of the Northwestern-Argonne Institute for Science and Engineering.
Phil Carns has worked at Argonne since 2008, acting as technical lead, principal investigator, or developer for influential HPC research projects including Darshan (application I/O characterization), TOKIO (platform I/O characterization), Mochi (composable data services), PVFS (parallel file system), CODES (storage system simulation), and the Exascale Computing Project (data libraries and services for exascale platforms). He is a recipient of multiple R&D 100 awards.
