Thomas Sterling, professor, joined the LSU faculty from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory where he was a principal scientist and the California Institute of Technology where he was a faculty associate. He received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Dr. Sterling's research interests focus on system architecture for high performance computing for both ground based and autonomous mobile applications. He is developing the MIND processor in memory architecture based on ParalleX, an advanced message-driven split-transaction computing model for scalable low-power fault-tolerant operation. In addition, he is developing an ultra lightweight supervisor runtime kernel in support of MIND and other fine grain architectures (like CELL) and the Agincourt parallel programming language for high efficiency through intrinsics in support of latency hiding and low overhead synchronization for both conventional and innovative parallel comptuter architectures.
