George Biros has Professor appointments with the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science (by courtesy) and is holder of the W. A. "Tex" Moncrief, Jr. Endowment in Simulation-Based Engineering and Sciences Chair No. 2 at the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering & Sciences at UT Austin. He earned his Ph.D. in Computational Science and Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and held a post-doctoral appointment at NYU’s Courant Institute. He leads the Oden Institute's Parallel Algorithms for Data Analysis and Simulation Group (PADAS).
Biros has held faculty positions at the University of Pennsylvania and Georgia Institute of Technology.
PADAS focuses on computational mathematics and the invention of new parallel algorithms for physics-based simulations and large-scale data analysis. George and his group members are developing technologies for discovery and innovation that will harness the upcoming breakthroughs in high performance computing, including exascale platforms. Current research topics undertaken by PADAS include parallel algorithms and software for integral and differential equations, inverse problems, machine learning, complex fluids, blood rheology, and medical image analysis.
Biros is a two-time winner of the Association for Computing Machinery’s Gordon Bell Prize. In addition, he received an Early Career Young Investigator Award from the U.S. Department of Energy, and has authored numerous scientific publications.
