Background

Irene received her PhD in Scientific Computation from the University of Minnesota in USA and a BSc in Mathematics, with emphasis on Computational Mathematics, from the University of Crete in Greece. Before joining Cranfield University, she was a research scientist at the University of Cyprus, adjunct faculty at the Cyprus University of Technology and research assistant at the University of Minnesota Army High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC) and the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI). As an undergraduate student she participated in the 1995 summer scholarship programme, organised by the University of Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC), where she got introduced to the field of High Performance Computing.

Current activities

Dr. Irene Moulitsas joined Cranfield University as a Lecturer in Scientific Computing in 2012 and is currently the Course Director for the MSc in Computational Software Techniques in Engineering. Irene's research has focused on developing novel algorithms for enabling the efficient execution of large scientific computations on parallel processing platforms. She has developed highly efficient serial and parallel algorithms, and software, that are publicly available for use. Her research work is published in highly selective conferences and international journals and her software packages are used extensively by numerous universities, research laboratories, and companies.

Clients

Irene's research work has been funded through the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Defence (DoD), European Framework Programs (FP5 and FP7), the Research Promotion Foundation (RPF) of Cyprus and Innovate UK.
