Kamal Saha joined Center for Research Computing (CRC) in 2014 as an HPC engineer. In addition to his regular HPC user-support and user-classroom training at CRC, he has been a critical part of an exascale research project at the Department of Energy's PSAAP II center (C-SWARM) at Notre Dame, where he puts his effort into improving the scaling performance of a multi-scale and multiphysics-involved finite element code (called PGFem3D) on hundreds of thousands of cores on U.S. National Labs resources. In his previous positions at the University of Delaware, Oak Ridge National Lab (ONRL), and Max Planck Institute in Germany, he worked on algorithmic and large-scale parallel code development projects in massively supercomputer architectures to model and simulate quantum transport properties of various nano-scaled devices. At ORNL, he was the main developer in advancing NEGF-DFT transport code for multiprobe molecular electronics. Saha received his Ph.D. in physics from Jadavpur University, India. He has published 22 articles in top-ranking journals, including Physical Review Letters and Nano Letters, and he also owns a U.S. Patent relating to biosensors.
