ABOUT THE SPEAKERS


Dr Rosemary Francis, Altair
 

Dr Francis founded Ellexus, the I/O profiling company, in 2010 following her PhD in computing architecture and career in the semiconductor industry. After building the company for 10 years, it was acquired by Altair in 2020. She now continues her technical role as Chief Scientist within the PBS works team where the Ellexus tools now reside. She is also the VP of product for the Ellexus tools.

Dr Rosemary Francis is an expert on computer architecture, high-performance computing and analytics. She has a keen interest in promoting diversity in engineering, as well as education initiatives to get more children learning about all spheres of computer science. Dr Francis describes herself as an obsessive technologist who "looks up"; she has always had to know “why” and “how”.
