Dr. Ali Akoglu is the director of the Reconfigurable Computing Lab, UA site director of the NSF Center for Cloud and Autonomic Computing, and director of the NVIDIA CUDA Teaching Center. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the Arizona State University in 2005. Dr. Akoglu is an expert in high performance scientific computing and parallel computing with a primary focus on restructuring computationally challenging algorithms for achieving high performance on field programmable gate array (FPGA) and graphics processing unit (GPU) hardware architectures. He has been involved in many crosscutting collaborative projects with the goal of solving the challenges of bridging the gap between the domain scientist and highly-parallel hardware architectures under the umbrella of organizations such as the BIO5 Institute and CYVERSE. His research projects have been funded by the National Science Foundation, US Air Force, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratories, Army Battle Command Battle Laboratory, and industry partners such as Raytheon and Nvidia.
