Dr. Phillip Colella received his A.B. (1974), M.A. (1976) and Ph.D. (1979) degrees from the University of California at Berkeley, all in applied mathematics. He has been a staff scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and a Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of California at Berkeley.

He is currently a Senior Scientist and Group Leader for the Applied Numerical Algorithms Group in the Computational Research Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and a Professor in Residence in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at UC Berkeley.

He has developed high-resolution and adaptive numerical algorithms for partial differential equations and numerical simulation capabilities for a variety of applications in science and engineering. He has also participated in the design of high-performance software infrastructure for scientific computing, including software libraries, frameworks, and programming languages.

Honors and awards include the IEEE Sidney Fernbach Award for high-performance computing in 1998, the SIAM/ACM prize (with John Bell) for computational science and engineering in 2003, election to the US National Academy of Sciences in 2004, and election to the inaugural class of SIAM Fellows in 2009.

Daniel T. Graves, Phillip Colella, David Modiano, Jeffrey Johnson, Bjorn Sjogreen, Xinfeng Gao, "A Cartesian Grid Embedded Boundary Method for the Compressible Navier Stokes Equations", Communications in Applied Mathematics and Computational Science, December 23, 2013,

In this paper, we present an unsplit method for the time-dependent
  compressible Navier-Stokes equations in two and three dimensions.
  We use a a conservative, second-order Godunov algorithm.
  We use a Cartesian grid, embedded boundary method to resolve complex
  boundaries.  We solve for viscous and conductive terms with a
  second-order semi-implicit algorithm.  We demonstrate second-order
  accuracy in solutions of smooth problems in smooth geometries and
  demonstrate robust behavior for strongly discontinuous initial
  conditions in complex geometries.

We describe the rationale behind the design of key features of Titanium—an explicitly parallel dialect of JavaTM for high-performance scientific programming—and our experiences in building applications with the language. Specifically, we address Titanium’s Partitioned Global Address Space model, SPMD parallelism support, multi-dimensional arrays and array-index calculus, memory management, immutable classes (class-like types that are value types rather than reference types), operator overloading, and generic programming. We provide an overview of the Titanium compiler implementation, covering various parallel analyses and optimizations, Titanium runtime technology and the GASNet network communication layer. We summarize results and lessons learned from implementing the NAS parallel benchmarks, elliptic and hyperbolic solvers using Adaptive Mesh Refinement, and several applications of the Immersed Boundary method.

Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) languages combine the programming convenience of shared memory with the locality and performance control of message passing. One such language, Unified Parallel C (UPC) is an extension of ISO C defined by a consortium that boasts multiple proprietary and open source compilers. Another PGAS language, Titanium, is a dialect of Java T M designed for high performance scientific computation. In this paper we describe some of the highlights of two related projects, the Titanium project centered at U.C. Berkeley and the UPC project centered at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Both compilers use a source-to-source strategy that translates the parallel languages to C with calls to a communication layer called GASNet. The result is portable highperformance compilers that run on a large variety of shared and distributed memory multiprocessors. Both projects combine compiler, runtime, and application efforts to demonstrate some of the performance and productivity advantages to these languages.
