Maxim Naumov's picture

Maxim Naumov joined NVIDIA Research in January 2015. His interests include parallel numerical linear algebra and related topics. Previously, he has spent 5 years working on different NVIDIA libraries. He lead the development of the AmgX library, which provides distributed Algebraic Multigrid, Krylov and Relaxation-based schemes. He has also worked on the cuBLAS, cuSPARSE and cuSOLVER(RF) libraries that are part of the CUDA Toolkit. Most notably, he developed methods for sparse triangular solve, incomplete LU factorization and LU re-factorization. In the past, Maxim held positions at the Intel Corporation Microprocessor Technology Lab and Computational Software Lab, and was awarded 2008-09 Intel Foundation Ph.D. Fellowship during his graduate studies. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science (with specialization in Computational Science and Engineering) in 2009 and his B.Sc. in Computer Science and Mathematics in 2003, all from Purdue University - West Lafayette.
