Research Interests

  • Extreme-Scale Computing on Heterogeneous Supercomputers: one of my research interest is to explore the numerical methods, parallelization schemes, performance tuning techniques, as well as redesigning strategies for mapping some of the most challenging scientific applications, such as atmospheric modeling, and earthquake simulation, onto emerging many-core, and reconfigurable architectures, and to enable depiction of extreme-scale scientific scenarios on leadership peta to exa-scale supercomputers.
  • Data Mining Methods for Analyzing Scientific Data Sets: facing a fast growth in the volume of data from both observations and simulations, we explore parallel data mining methods, enabled by the emerging heterogeneous architectures, to acclerate the process of making new discoveries.
  • Fusion of the above two.
  • Application-specific hardware customization.

Research Highlights

  • Real-Time Simulation of a Random Quantum Circuit Using a New Sunway Supercomputer: A performance of 1.2 Eflops (single-preicision), or 4.4 Eflops (mixed-precision) for simulating a 10x10x(1+40+1) circuit (a new milestone for classical simulation of RQC), using about 42 million Sunway cores. The time to sample Goolge Sycamore in a simulation way is reduced from years to 304 seconds (2021 ACM Gordon Bell Prize)[1].
  • Climate Modeling on Sunway TaihuLight: (1) The work started with refactoring[2] and redesign[3] of the entire Community Atmospheric Model (over half million lines of code) for Sunway TaihuLight, achieving 3.4 SYPD for 25km global atmospheric simulation and close-to-observation simulation of hurricane Katrina lifecycle; a sustainable double-precision performance of over 3.3 PFlops (750-m resolution) of the dynamical-core using 10,075,000 cores (2017 ACM Gordon Bell Prize finalist). (2) The work was then extended to a coupled climate model, CESM 1.3 (with a full coupling of atmosphere, ocean, land and sea-ice models), and achieved a first high resolution coupled climate model for heterogeneous supercomputers, CESM-HR_sw1.0 (https://github.com/ihesp/CESM_SW) (2020)[4]. (3) The model generates an unprecedented 600-year high-resolution climate modeling result data set[5].
  • Non-linear earthquake simulation: (1) We adopted comprehensive memory-related optimizations to resolve TaihuLight's bandwidth constraints, and proposed on-the-fly compression, which doubles the maximum problem size and further improves the performance by 24%; the resulting design achieved 15% of the peak, using 160,000 MPI processes, 10,400,000 cores, and enabled simulation for 18-Hz and 8-meter scenarios (2017 ACM Gordon Bell Prize), one of the Top 10 Research Achievements of Tsinghua University in 2017)[6]. (2) The work was later extended to support the description of complex topography, with case studies on simulating the Wenchuan earthquake that scales to 10 million cores on Sunway TaihuLight (2018)[7]. (3) The potential of using customized hardware architectures and mixed-precision numerical schemes is also studied on FPGA devices, with one FPGA chip to provide equivalent performance to over 200 Intel X86 cores or over 500 Sunway cores (2022)[8].
  • AI-enabled Remote Sensing Image Fusing and Analysis for Global Change Studies: (1) We improve the land cover classification accuracy by integrating free and public high-resolution Google Earth images (HR-GEI) with Landsat Operational Land Imager (OLI) and Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) imagery, combining both texture and spectral features to achieve a better land cover map[9]. (2) We improve national and global scale land cover mapping from 10m to 3m resolution, by jointly optimizing the network parameters and correcting the noisy labels with a novel online noise correction approach[10]. (3) We propose a novel domain adaptive tree detection method, i.e., a Multi-level Attention Domain Adaptation Network (MADAN)[11], to support cross-regional oil palm tree counting, detection, and growing status monitoring[12].
