Wileam “Wil” Y. Phan is a Research Software Engineer in the HPCToolkit Performance Tools research project in the Department of Computer Science at Rice University. He has a background in computational condensed-matter physics and is keen on learning both time-tested and cutting-edge technologies in the ever-evolving high-performance computing (HPC) world. His research interests include performance modeling and analysis, parallel computing, tensor and array algorithms, accelerated supercomputing with Graphic Processing Units (GPUs), emerging architectures (specifically Arm64), containerization, software testing, continuous integration, and compiler technology. He is a natural polyglot, both in human languages and programming languages. His primary languages are English, Bahasa Indonesia, and Fortran. He is particularly excited about being able to contribute to the development and optimization of various domain science applications within the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) targeting Department of Energy (DOE) leadership computing facilities.
