Tim has been with Intel since 1993 and has worked with brilliant people on great projects including: (1) the first TFLOP computer (ASCI Red), (2) the OpenMP, OpenCL and DPC++ programming languages, (3) two different research processors (Intel's first TFLOP chip and the 48 core SCC), (4) Data management systems (Polystore systems and Array-based storage engines), and (5) the GraphBLAS API for expressing graph algorithms as sparse linear algebra. Currently he leads the data management and curation group in the Parallel Computing Lab and collaborates with researchers at MIT on the intersection of AI and data systems (dsail.csail.mit.edu).

Tim is passionate about teaching. He has been teaching OpenMP longer than anyone on the planet with OpenMP tutorials at numerous venues including every SC conference but one since 1998. He has published five books on different aspects of parallel computing with the latest (November 2019) titled “The OpenMP Common Core: making OpenMP Simple Again”.
