Dr. Marie-Christine Sawley

Exascale Lab Director, Intel

Marie-Christine Sawley holds a degree in Physics and a PhD in Plasma Physics from EPFL (1985). After a postdoc at the University of Sydney, she joined the EPFL in 1988 to lead the support group for HPC applications. She lead a number of HPC initiatives for introducing new technology at the EPFL such as the PATP with the Cray T3D, the SwissTX prototype and the establishing the Vital IT partnership between HP, EPFL and the SIB. She joined the ETH Zurich in 2003 to become the general manager of the Swiss national Supercomputing centre, expanding the centre in the following 4 ½ years from a headcount of 19 up to 40. From 2008 until 2010 she worked as senior scientist at the Institute for particle physics of ETH on the massive computing requirements on the LCG grid for the CMS detector. She joined Intel at the end of 2010 to become the Intel manager of the ECR lab in Paris.
