Heike McCraw
(formerly Heike Jagode)


I am currently employed as a full-time research scientist at the Innovative Computing Laboratory (ICL) at The University of Tennessee (UTK). I obtained my B.Sc. and first M.Sc. degree in Applied Mathematics from The University of Applied Sciences Mittweida, Germany in 2001, and my second M.Sc. degree in High Performance Computing from The University of Edinburgh, Scotland in 2006.
My position at ICL includes performing basic research in computer science for performance of High Performance Computing (HPC) applications and architectures, focusing primarily on developing methods and tools for performance analysis and tuning on HPC applications. I am currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program at the Department of Computer Science at UTK (since Fall 2009).
