Steven Wright

Introduction

I have been at Warwick since 2006, first studying for a MEng in Computer Science and then undertaking a PhD within the Performance Computing and Visualisation (PCAV) research group. I completed my PhD in 2014 with a thesis titled "Monitoring, Analysis and Optimisation of I/O in Parallel Applications".

I am now a post-doctoral researcher within PCAV, working on performance analysis, modelling and optimisation.

Research

The main focus of my research is performance modelling and optimisation of parallel applications. My current project involved the performance modelling and optimisation of closed-source applications.

Teaching

Within the Department of Computer Science, I have been involved in many modules including CS118, CS132, CS133, CS241, CS247, CS333, CS402 and MA117.

I am the module organiser for CS118 Programming for Computer Scientists.
