Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres speak with Mike Heroux and Jim Willenbring of Sandia National Lab. about Trilinos. The Trilinos Project is an effort to develop algorithms and enabling technologies within an object-oriented software framework for the solution of large-scale, complex multi-physics engineering and scientific problems.
Jim Willenbring is a staff member at Sandia National Laboratories and has worked on the Trilinos Project since 2002. He is the Trilinos Framework and Tools Capability Area Leader. His contribution to the project is focused on Trilinos level coordination, planning and improvement, as well as build system, testing, and porting issues. Jim holds a B.S. in Mathematics/Computer Science from St. John's University (MN), and a M.S. in Computer Science from St. Cloud State University.
Mike Heroux is a staff member at Sandia National Laboratories, working on new algorithm development, and robust parallel implementation of solver components. He leads the Trilinos Project. Mike also works on the development of scalable parallel scientific and engineering applications and and leads the Mantevo project, which is focused on the development of Open Source, portable miniapplications and minidrivers for scientific and engineering applications.
Mike works remotely for Sandia, maintaining an office at home in rural central Minnesota and at St. John's University where he is Scientist in Residence in the Computer Science Department. He is a member of SIAM, and Associate Editor for the SIAM SISC journal. He is a member and Distinguished Scientist in ACM and is the Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software.
