Jos is the senior engineering manager for parallel computing products at MathWorks. He has responsibility for all parts of Parallel Computing
Toolbox, including the use of GPU and big data types in other areas of the product line. He has lead the development team since its inception in 2003 and in that time has architected much of the toolbox, particularly the core infrastructure and parallel language areas. At SC08 the MATLAB parallel language was a joint winner of the HPC Challenge Class 2 award for Most Productive Implementation.
In addition, he is also responsible for MATLAB Drive, MATLAB Connector, and products that help link the desktop to the cloud. Before moving to a development role within MathWorks, he worked as a consultant in the U.K., writing large-scale MATLAB applications, particularly in the finance and automotive sectors. Prior to joining MathWorks in 2000, he held a Royal Society Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Otago, New Zealand. His area of research was Experimental Bose-Einstein Condensation (BEC), a branch of low-temperature atomic physics.
