Adam McLaughlin works on design verification and software for Anton. He holds a B.S. in computer systems engineering from Boston University, where he graduated magna cum laude, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. During his doctoral studies, Adam worked as a research assistant for Professor David Bader in the High Performance Computing Lab at Georgia Tech; one paper produced from that work, "Scalable and High Performance Betweenness Centrality on the GPU", was a Best Student Paper finalist at the 2014 Supercomputing Conference. Prior to joining the team full-time, Adam worked as an intern at DESRES, during which time he developed an LLVM-based translation tool in support of formal verification methods. In his free time, Adam enjoys concerts, comedy, and reminiscing about his days as a semi-professional poker player.
