 Dr. Sterling is best known as the "​father of Beowulf"​ for his pioneering research in commodity/​Linux cluster computing. He was awarded the Gordon Bell Prize in 1997 with his collaborators for this work. He was the PI of the HTMT Project sponsored by NSF, DARPA, NSA, and NASA to explore advanced technologies and their implication for high-end computer system architectures. Other research projects included the DARPA DIVA PIM architecture project with USC-ISI, the Cray Cascade Petaflops architecture project sponsored by the DARPA HPCS Program, and the Gilgamesh high-density computing project at NASA JPL.  Dr. Sterling is best known as the "​father of Beowulf"​ for his pioneering research in commodity/​Linux cluster computing.

 Thomas Sterling is currently engaged in research associated with the innovative ParalleX execution model for extreme scale computing to establish the foundation principles guiding co-design for the development of future generation Exascale computing systems. ParalleX is currently the conceptual centerpiece of the XPRESS project as part of the DOE X-stack program and has been demonstrated in proof-of-concept in the HPX-5 runtime system software. Dr. Sterling is the co-author of six books and holds six patents. ​ He was the recipient of the 2013 Vanguard Award and is a Fellow of the AAAS. He is also co-guest editor with Bill Gropp of the HPCwire Exascale Edition. Thomas Sterling is currently engaged in research associated with the innovative ParalleX execution model for extreme scale computing to establish the foundation principles guiding co-design for the development of future generation Exascale computing systems.

-Rauchwerger'​s ​research has targeted the area of high performance compilers, thread level speculation ​in both software ​and hardware implementation,​ libraries for parallel and distributed computing, and adaptive optimizations. His current focus is STAPL, a parallel superset of the ISO C++ STL library which is driven by his goal to improve the productivity of parallel software development. His approach to parallel code development ​and optimization ​(STAPL ​and SmartApps) has influenced industrial products at major corporations. ​+Rauchwerger'​s ​ ​approach to auto-parallelization, thread-level speculation and parallel code development (STAPL) has influenced industrial products at corporations ​like IBM, Intel and Sun.
  
 +Rauchwerger is an IEEE Fellow and NSF CAREER, IBM and Intel faculty awards recipient. He has chaired various IEEE and ACM conferences.
