Jahanzeb Hashmi is currently a fourth year Ph.D. student at Ohio State University where he works at Network Based Computing Laboratory (NBCL) under the supervision of Prof. Dhabaleswar K. (DK) Panda. Before joining NBCL, he was a graduate fellow at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Ohio State University. His research is mainly targeted at designing and optimizing high-level programming models and runtime systems to achieve high performance and scalability on emerging multi-/many-core architectures. He works on the areas related to high performance architectures and interconnects, design and optimization of MPI, PGAS, and MPI+X runtimes, exploiting memory-mapped shared address space paradigm, and group communication primitives. Prior to joining OSU, he completed his MS in computer engineering at Ajou University, South Korea under Korean Global IT fellowship, and received his BS from National University of Science and Technology, Pakistan under Prime Minister's ICT scholarship program.
