Gabriele Jost obtained her doctorate in Applied Mathematics from the University of Göttingen, Germany. For more than a decade she worked for various vendors (Suprenum GmbH, Thinking Machines Corporation, and NEC) of high performance parallel computers in the areas of vectorization, parallelization, performance analysis and optimization of scientific and engineering applications.
In 1998 she joined the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California, USA as a Research Scientist. Here her work focused on evaluating and enhancing tools for parallel program development and investigating the usefulness of different parallel programming paradigms. In 2005 she moved from California to the Pacific Northwest and joined Sun Microsystems as a staff engineer in the Compiler Performance Engineering team.
In 2006 she joined Oracle as a Principal Software Engineer and worked on performance analysis of application server software. In 2008 she decided to return to California and pursue her passion for High Performance Computing. She joined the Texas Advanced Computing Center as a research scientist in HPC applications groups and worked remotely from Monterey, CA. In October 2011 Gabriele joined Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) as a design engineer in the Systems Performance Optimization group.
