Driss is a research assistant at the department Simulation of reactive Thermo-Fluid Systems of the TU Darmstadt. He received his Master of Science in Chemical Engineering after graduating from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

His main research interests are in the fields of high-performance computing and large-scale simula-tions of turbulent reactive flows with application to sustainable energy systems.

Since 2021, Driss is a member of the SDL Energy Conversion for the National High Performance Compu-ting Center for Computational Engineering Sciences (NHR4CES).

Professional Competence

Driss focuses on approaches to accelerate chemical source term evaluations on heterogeneous HPC architectures. The main focus lies on developing and integrating ODE solvers and efficient chemistry routines that are well-suited to application on GPUs as well as the load balancing between GPU and CPU nodes.

In this scope, the use of high-performance computing techniques is crucial for achieving meaningful speedups by full utilization of GPU accelerators.
