George Gunner

Software Engineer

George Gunner received a B.S. in Physics in 2012 from the University of Washington, and an M.S. in Computer Science & Engineering from the University at Buffalo in 2017. For his Master’s Project, he implemented a scalable parallel algorithm in MPI and OpenMP to perform scalar multiplication of points on an elliptic curve, which is used in some public key encryption schemes. This project aimed to experimentally determine whether the problem could be effectively solved using parallel computation, given currently used curve sizes.

Mr. Gunner has been with Heron Systems, Inc. for approximately 1 year. He provides ongoing support for the E2 Systems Test & Evaluation Laboratory (ESTEL) on site at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station, and is currently involved with another project pertaining to distributed resource and task allocation for a swarm of autonomous drones.

Research Interests

  • General purpose distributed computing, including both asynchronous and synchronous computation models.
  • Physics based simulations.
