Jeffrey K. Hollingsworth is a Professor and Associate Chair of the
Computer Science Department at the University of Maryland, College Park.
He also has an appointment in the University of Maryland Institute for
Advanced Computer Studies and the Electrical and Computer Engineering
Department. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in computer sciences from
the University of Wisconsin. He received a B.S. in Electrical
Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley.
Dr. Hollingsworth’s research seeks to develop a unified framework to
understand the performance of large systems and focuses in several
areas. First, he developed new approach, called dynamic instrumentation,
to permit the efficient measurement of large parallel applications.
Second, he has developed an auto-tuning framework called Active Harmony
that can be used to tune kernels, libraries, or full applications.
Third, he is investigating the interactions between different layers of
software and hardware to understand how they influence performance. He
is Editor in Chief of the journal Parallel Computing, and will be the
general chair of the SC12 conference.
