Meet new FAH GPU programmer Yutong Zhao

We have had an unfilled spot in our GPU programming team for a few months and I'm happy to announce that we recently made a great new hire: Yutong Zhao.

Yutong completed his undergraduate degree in Math, Chemistry, and Biochemistry from the University of Toronto, and a Masters degree in Computational Chemistry from HKUST, focusing on GPU-powered clustering algorithms. Previously, he has also worked on projects such as FoldIt! Currently, he is the lead developer of the Folding@Home GPU core and aims to extend functionality while increasing maintainability. He also plays a key role on the OpenMM side, he works on devising parallel algorithms to speed up MD simulations. He also maintains a blog detailing some of his algorithms and problems on .
