Professor Mark J. Clement

Mark J. Clement, Ph.D. is Associate Professor, Networked Computing Laboratory Computer Science Department, Brigham Young University.
His research areas include high performance networks and computing platforms. He is currently working with AT&T on research to utilize Internet backbone links more effectively. Research into router security also promises to protect Internet resources from attacks.
Mark has also been a Principle Investigator on the DOGMA system which allows clusters of workstations, supercomputers, and idle desktop machines to participate in solving difficult computational problems. He has been involved in Phylogenetic Analysis (determining evolutionary histories through the examination of DNA) which requires extensive network and computational resources.
He coauthored Analytical Performance Prediction on Multicomputers, Network Performance Modeling for PVM Clusters, Multivariate Statistical Techniques for Parallel Performance Prediction, Using Analytical Performance Prediction for Architectural Scaling, Dynamic Performance Prediction for Scalable Parallel Computing, Overlapping Computations and I/O in Parallel Sorting, Automated Performance Prediction for Scalable Parallel Computing, The YGuard access control model: set-based access control, Preemption Based Backfill, and Medium Grain Size Applications on Distributed Memory Multicomputers.
Mark earned his B.S. in Electrical Engineering at Brigham Young University in 1985, his M.S. in Electrical Engineering at Brigham Young University in 1989 with his research on the effects of multilevel cache parameters on system performance, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science at Oregon State University in 1994 with the dissertation “Analytical Performance Prediction of Parallel Programs”.
