Associate Professor Bertil Schmidt is the principle investigator at NTU. Prior to coming to NTU, he was faculty member at the University of New South Wales and Senior Researcher at the University of Melbourne. At NTU he also held appointments as Program Director M.Sc. in Bioinformatics and Deputy Director of BMERC. Before coming to Singapore, he held research appointments at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and RWTH Aachen. Bertil has been involved in the design and implementation of parallel algorithms and architectures for over a decade. He has worked extensively with fine-grained (e.g. GPUs, FPGAs, Cell BE), coarse-grained (clusters, grids) as well as hybrid parallel architectures. He has successfully applied these technologies to various domains including bioinformatics, image processing, multimedia video compression, and cryptography. He has published in journals such as Parallel Computing, Journal of VLSI Signal Processing, Microelectronic Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, IEEE Transactions on IT in Biomedicine, Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience, Future Generation Computer Systems, Bioinformatics, BMC Bioinformatics, Autoimmunity. His list of publications and CV can be found at:
