Title: High-performance computing and climate modelling: a long and fruitful relationship


Msc. Kim Serradell Maronda (male) is currently managing the Computational Earth Sciences group in the Earth Sciences department at Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS). In the last years, he has been in charge of the system administration of all the computational resources of the department and he was also responsible for supervising the operational runs of the NMMB/BSC-CTM model and CALIOPE Air Quality System at BSC. In that sense, he was also involved in the analysis of the models to improve their performance and developed strong skills of compilation and scripting. Furthermore, he's focused on deploying different earth system models (dust transport, climate or weather forecast) required by the department in a wide range of HPC architectures. Work Package leader within ESiWACE and ESiWACE2 (H2020 Weather and Climate Center of Excellence), IS-ENES3 (H2020) and ESCAPE-2 (FET H2020) and he is also involved in EC-FP7 and H2020 projects: IS-ENES2, Montblanc and IMMERSE. He’s member of different international fora, reviewer of ERA projects and has been an active contributor of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA4) of the ETP4HPC platform.
