Fengguang Song, Ph.D., joins the School of Science from the Samsung Research Center in California, where he worked as a senior researcher. At Samsung, he was tasked with developing the next generation of highly scalable operating systems based on emerging cloud-computing technologies. He will serve as an assistant professor at IUPUI.

“I love IUPUI’s beautiful campus and I look forward to the opportunity to work with a group of talented computer science faculty,” Song said. “My experience in high-performance computing will benefit several areas of research in the department, including data mining, imaging, visualization and more. I look forward to collaborating on inter-disciplinary projects to solve large-scale scientific problems.”

Song also held several roles with the Innovative Computing Laboratory at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, he earned his Ph.D. in computer science. As part of his post-doctoral work there, Song worked to develop algorithms for large-scale, multicore, cluster computing systems.

“Dr. Song is an expert in high performance computing with extensive experience in cloud computing, graphic processing unit (GPU) technologies and large-scale scientific computing,” said Shiaofen Fang, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Computer and Information Science. “He will join the high-performance computing group and help bring it to real scientific domains through the newly established School of Science Institute for Mathematical Modeling and Computational Science (IMMCS).” 

Song earned his undergraduate degree in computer science from Zhengzhou University in China, a master’s degree in engineering from the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in China and a master’s degree in computer science from the University of British Columbia.

The National Science Foundation has recognized Song’s research. He also has served as a reviewer for several industry publications and conferences, including the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, the Journal of Supercomputing and the IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing.
