Employment history


Scientific Associate: January '2005 -- May '2006

Head of a Sector: June '2006 -- October '2017

Assistant Head of a Department: November '2017 -- December '2018

Head of a Department: January '2019 -- present

Participating in designing of high performance computing system architecture Angara supercomputer based on a
custom multithreaded/multicore microprocessor and high speed interconnect. Main responsibilities are design of the architecture of distributed shared memory, an architectural
simulation of microprocessor, and performance evaluation. 

  • Development of the parallel simulator of Angara supercomputer based on cycle accurate simulation of multithreaded microprocessor and event driven simulation of interconnect. The code is written on C++, Charm++.
  • Development of highly tuned benchmarks for Angara supercomputer: DGEMM, Stream, FFT, RandomAccess, BFS, Sparse Matrix-Vector Multiplication.
  • Development of the microarchitecture specification for Verilog programmers.

Participating in design and development of custom a 4D-torus high speed Angara interconnect for HPC systems (COTS clusters and custom 
supercomputers). Primary responsibilities are architectural simulation, performance evaluation (including comparison to other custom high speed interconnects). 

  • Development of the parallel simulator of the 4D-torus router and adapter.
  • Development of benchmarks (HPCG, Graph500, NPB, HPCChallenge) for Angara interconnect, performance evaluation, and comparison the results to IBM Blue Gene/P and Infiniband-based cluster.

Workshop "Supercomputer technologies and atomistic modeling"

The regular workshop organized by the International Laboratory for Supercomputer Atomistic Modelling and Multi-scale Analysis presented reports on the modern development of supercomputer technologies, on the HSE supercomputer, and on the results of solving various real problems using atomic modeling.

Laboratory staff members presented the talks at the National Supercomputer Forum (NSCF-2018)

Mikhail Khalilov, Alexander Semenov and Vladimir Stegailov made presentations at the National Supercomputer Forum (NSCF-2018), which was held November 27-30, 2018 in the Aylamazyan Program Systems Institute of RAS, Pereslavl-Zalessky.

International conference Russian Supercomputing Days 2018

Russian Supercomputing Days is a key Russian supercomputer conference with international participation that annually gathers in Moscow the leading scientists and experts in high-performance computing and computer science. This year, the staff of the International Laboratory for Supercomputer Atomistic Modelling and Multi-scale Analysis took part in the conference (Nikolay Kondratyuk, Vsevolod Nikolskiy, Genri Norman, Alexander Semenov, Alexey Timofeev and Mikhail Khalilov).
