As with any home page of any person that has a busy life, these pages are only occasionally updated and thus are constantly on the verge of becoming obsolete. The main purpose for keeping these pages around is to have a location to conveniently make material available that i have been working on, without being subjected to the constant file layout changes of university run webpages and without being tied to my current employer.
My current position is that of a Associate Dean for Scientific Computing in the College of Science and Technology as well as Associate Director of the Institute for Computational Molecular Science and Assistant Vice President for High-Performance Computing, all at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. Previously i was working as Senior Scientific Computing Expert on a project assignment in the Information and Communication Technology Section at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy, and I am still advising them and collaborating with them on projects related to High-Performance Computing.
On E-mails: As you may expect, I get a lot of e-mails, so I kindly ask you to understand that I am not always able to answer any question that is posed to me and that my replies may be delayed, short, and blunt. I also ask you to follow two suggestions to make it easier for me and thus more likely for you to get an answer: 1) please post questions about projects or software packages that have a mailing list, to this mailing list. This will automatically file your e-mail into the right category, give you the chance of having other people with more experience to answer as well, lets me choose what to answer, and doesn't force me to explain to you why I cannot answer. 2) please introduce yourself (unless we have already communicated recently) and provide your affiliation. I don't like to communicate with anonymous (to me) people or pseudonyms and I may have forgotten who you were. Since it is you that chooses to contact me, please have the courtesy to respect my wishes. Thanks in advance.
