Bill Feiereisen, PhD

Dr. Bill Feiereisen is a Senior Scientist and Corporate Strategist in High Performance Computing at Intel Corporation. He also holds a research appointment in computer science at the University of New Mexico. Bill works in all aspects of HPC from applications to hardware, but specializes in computational sciences.

He has broad experience in the community, having served as the Director of High Performance Computing for Lockheed Martin Corporation, the Chief Technologist and Division Director of the Computer and Computational Sciences Division at Los Alamos and before that as the director of the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Facility at Ames Research Center.
He is active in the broader computer science community, serving on the editorial board of IEEE/American Institute of Physics journal “Computers in Science and Engineering,” as the chairman emeritus of the Advisory Committee for the Open Grid Forum, on the council of the National Science Foundation’s Computing Community Consortium and as a founding member of the New Mexico Computing Applications Center. He is a member of several review boards and advisory committees.

Bill’s original interests in high performance computing come from computational fluid dynamics and range from turbulence modeling and rarefied gas dynamics with applications to turbo-machinery and hypersonic flows. In the last four years he has worked in high performance bioinformatics. The computer science of high performance computing that underlies computational science has been a motivator for his work since the nineties.

He holds a Doctorate and Masters in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University and a Bachelors Degree from the University of Wisconsin.

In his copious free time he is a wannabe bicycle racer and can usually be found running last in club races in New Mexico.
