Benjamin Klenk

Benjamin Klenk joined NVIDIA research in July 2017 after completing his PhD studies in Computer Engineering at the Ruprecht-Karls University in Heidelberg, Germany (defense scheduled for January 2018). His thesis focused on communication models for direct inter-GPU communication in which the GPU orchestrates the network traffic itself without the intervention of the CPU. He also holds a B.Eng. in Electrial Engineering from the Cooperative State Universtiy Mosbach, Germany and a M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the Ruprecht-Karls University in Heidelberg, Germany.

Benjamin is a member of the Networking Research Group and his research focuses on GPU-centric networking archtictures, communication models, and distributed and parallel applications with a focus on the training of deep neural nets.
