Franck Cappello

Senior Computer Scientist, Argonne National Laboratory

Franck Cappello is an expert in High Performance Computing with more than 20 years of experience. His research interest are fault tolerance and lossy compression. He initiated the SZ lossy compressor software at ANL. The SZ compressor is one of the most effective existing lossy compressors for scientific datasets. Franck is involved in several projects of the Exascale Computing Project. He leads the EZ software technology project on lossy compression. He leads the data reduction topic of the CODAR co-design project. He co-leads the data analytics topic of the "Computing the Sky at Extreme Scale" application project where he focuses particularly on lossy compression of N-body datasets. He contributed to several Exascale roadmaping efforts (IESP and EESI). Franck is fellow of the IEEE.
