PNNL Researcher Honored by Two Organizations


Antonino Tumeo

A computational science researcher at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has been elevated to the rank of senior member in two scientific organizations. Antonino Tumeo was recognized by the Association for Computing Machinery and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

Tumeo is a scientist in PNNL's high performance computing group, where he focuses on modeling, simulation, and prototyping of high performance computing systems, automating the design of computing systems, co-designing hardware and software to work together, and accelerating graph algorithms and big data analytics.

He has served as the co-organizer of various computational workshops at international conferences, in the program committees of top-tier computing conferences, and as the program co-chair of the ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers in 2016. He earned a master's degree in informatics engineering and a doctorate in computer engineering from Politecnico di Milano in Italy.

ACM is the world's largest educational and scientific computing society, with more than 100,000 members worldwide. The rank of senior member recognizes exceptional performance that sets members apart from their peers.

IEEE is the world's largest technical professional society, with more than 420,000 members internationally. The rank of senior member is the highest grade that members can apply for directly.
