Stephen Crago, Ph.D.

Director, Computational Sciences and Technology

Led by Stephen Crago, ISI's Computational Sciences and Technology division seeks to solve complex science, engineering and defense problems through novel supercomputing and other approaches. He directs experts in adaptive parallel execution, including cloud computing, multicore software, reconfigurable computing and wireless networks; and in computational sciences, including quantum computing, compilers, big data, microarchitecture/integrated circuits, science automation technologies and social networks.

Crago's own research interests include computer architecture, multiprocessors, high-performance heterogeneous cloud computing, embedded processing, performance analysis and optimization. He also works in intelligent computing resource control; efficiency, scalability and other optimization; and novel computing architectures. Crago joined ISI in 1997 and has led numerous research projects. He received his PhD in computer engineering from the University of Southern California.
