Aram H. Markosyan

I am a computational scientist focused on runtime systems for high performance computing.  I currently work as a postdoctoral researcher at Sandia National Laboratories (Livermore, California). I am also a visiting scholar at in the group of Prof. Mark J. Kushner at the University of Michigan.

In particular, I am interested in runtime systems for HPC, numerical methods, financial mathematics, object-oriented design in scientific computing, machine learning and AI.

Specialties: Finite volume, finite difference, and finite element methods for partial differential equations, in particularly hyperbolic systems of conservation laws; computational fluid dynamics; computational plasma physics; adaptive mesh refinement; code and calculation verification.  Use of C, C++, FORTRAN, Python, R, QT, MPI, OpenMP, CUDA and Object-Oriented Design in scientific software development for High Performance Computing.

I am the developer of PumpKin, a tool for post-processing of results from zero-dimensional plasma kinetics solvers. It is freely available for download at
