Ahmad Maroof Karimi is a staff member as an HPC Operational Data Scientist in Analytics and AI Methods at Scale Group. His research include analyzing HPC operational datasets to monitor the data motion in the HPC system so as to enhance the understanding of the flow of data in HPC under different operating conditions. The knowledge of the data motion will help guide the lab on future investment in computational resources.
Before joining Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Dr. Karimi completed his Ph.D. in Computer Science at CWRU, Cleveland, Ohio in October, 2020. His Ph.D. dissertation titled “Data science and machine learning to predict degradation and power of photovoltaic systems: convolutional and spatiotemporal graph neural networks” focused on classifying degradation mechanism and performance prediction of a photovoltaic power plant. He received his M.S. degree from the University of Toledo, Ohio, and BS degree from Aligarh Muslim University, India. Ahmad has also worked in the IT industry as a software programmer and a database designer for almost three years.
