William Dally

Bill Dally joined NVIDIA in January 2009 as chief scientist, after spending 12 years at Stanford University, where he was chairman of the computer science department. Dally and his Stanford team developed the system architecture, network architecture, signaling, routing and synchronization technology that is found in most large parallel computers today. Dally was previously at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1986 to 1997, where he and his team built the J-Machine and the M-Machine, experimental parallel computer systems that pioneered the separation of mechanism from programming models and demonstrated very low overhead synchronization and communication mechanisms. From 1983 to 1986, he was at California Institute of Technology (CalTech), where he designed the MOSSIM Simulation Engine and the Torus Routing chip, which pioneered “wormhole” routing and virtual-channel flow control. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, a Fellow of the IEEE and the ACM, and has received the ACM Eckert-Mauchly Award, the IEEE Seymour Cray Award, and the ACM Maurice Wilkes award. He has published over 250 papers, holds over 120 issued patents, and is an author of four textbooks. Dally received a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Tech, a master’s in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from CalTech.  He was a cofounder of Velio Communications and Stream Processors.

Samuli Laine

Samuli Laine joined NVIDIA Research in 2007 after receiving his Ph.D. at Helsinki University of Technology. His research interests have ranged from photorealistic and real-time rendering to voxel-based graphics, GPU ray tracing, and 3D content creation. Currently Dr. Laine focuses on deep learning and its applications in computer graphics.

Research Scientist Openings

We're always looking for the most amazing people!Please visit our Careers Page


Besides their intern projects, our interns get to participate in events on and off campus where they are able to engage our CEO and other business leaders.Fun events are part of the mix, too -- this past summer our interns built skateboards for at-risk youth. Learn more about our intern program.

Government Projects

Our research objectives and those of the government agencies as we head toward the path of Exascale systems are often well-aligned, and we can work together to accelerate the research needed to realize larger-scale systems with the lower power and higher performance required to bring them to fruition.

Academic Collaborations

Our partnerships with Academia are one key way that we stay connected with the latest developments in our research areas, and also where we meet the next generation of researchers.
