Phil Tooley

Software Engineer

Phil Tooley has a background in theoretical and computational plasma physics but moved into HPC application development when he realised that the challenge of writing and optimizing the simulation codes he needed was more interesting to him than the physics itself.

Phil's primary focus is on analysing and optimizing HPC applications for customers of the POP project. This is an EU-funded Centre-of-Excellence of which NAG is a major part, designed to provide expert assistance and promote best practice for HPC in European science and industry. He is also involved in developing additional tools and methodologies to assist HPC application developers in diagnosing performance issues in their code.
