Andrew G. Salinger

Andy Salinger is the Manager of the Computational Science Department at Sandia National Labs. He was trained as a computational scientist while earning a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, with enough luck to have access to a Cray YMP (many MegaFLOPS!). His career has involved the development and integration of scalable algorithms into application areas such as chemical reactor design, incompressible flows, fluids-density functional theory, and ice sheet dynamics. Recently, Andy’s focus has been in the area of Climate Modeling, where he leads development efforts in Software and Algorithms for DOE’s Energy Exascale Earth System Model.
