Quest for Speed Leads CRD’s Ibrahim to Accelerating Supercomputing Applications

January 23, 2015

As a boy growing up in Egypt, Khaled Ibrahim was fascinated with learning about the things that were the fastest, strongest or biggest, whether it was a car, a horse or even a camel. His dream was to harness that speed. But going too fast was more scary than fun for him, so Ibrahim now pursues a different type of speed: specializing in performance tuning of scientific applications to accelerate their performance on supercomputers.
