Dr. Peter LindstromComputer Scientist, LLNL
Peter Lindstrom is a computer scientist and project leader in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His primary research areas include data compression, scientific visualization, computer graphics, and geometric modeling.
Peter has developed numerous lossy and lossless open source compressors for floating-point and mesh-based scientific data, including zfp, fpzip, and hzip, and has published two dozen papers on data compression over the past 15 years in top venues such as ACM SIGGRAPH, IEEE VIS, ACM/IEEE SC, and the IEEE Data Compression Conference. He leads the zfp data compression effort as part of the US DOE's Exascale Computing Project. His zfp software has been adopted by HPC I/O libraries like HDF5, ADIOS, and Silo, and is being integrated into popular visualization tools like VisIt and VTK-m. Peter previously served as Editor in Chief for Graphical Models and is currently a Senior Member of IEEE.
