Robert Latham, as a Principle Software Development Specialist at Argonne
National Laboratory, strives to make scientific applications use I/O more
efficiently. After earning his BS (1999) and MS (2000) in Computer Engineering
at Lehigh University (Bethlehem, PA), he worked at Paralogic, Inc., a Linux
cluster start-up. His work with cluster software including MPI implementations
and parallel file systems eventually led him to Argonne, where he has spent the
last 16 years. His research focus has been on high performance IO for
scientific applications and IO metrics. He has worked on the ROMIO MPI-IO
implementation, the parallel file systems PVFS (v1 and v2), Parallel
NetCDF, and Mochi I/O services.
