Bryan is a Senior Technologist in the Advanced Computer Engineering (ACE) Lab at the Centre for High Performance Computing, South Africa. He leads the HPC Ecosystems Project which focuses on redistributing first-tier HPC infrastructure to smaller, usually resource-constrained, institutions throughout the Southern African Development Community region; with clusters currently in seven South African sites, and seven other sub-Saharan nations. His team not only deploys the physical systems but develops the shared software stack and trains users and system administrators to use and administer the HPC system/s (in many cases this is the site's first HPC system).
Bryan also provides general HPC training and outreach initiatives for the CHPC; in particular, he lectures South Africa's ISC Student Cluster Competition participants and teaches parallel computing to post-graduate students and researchers in the field of Scientific Computing at the annual CHPC Winter School.
