Massimiliano Meneghin

Senior Principal Research Scientist



Massimiliano Meneghin is a Senior Principal Research Scientist at Autodesk Research in Toronto, Canada. Massimiliano’s background is in high-performance computing, and his current research interests are parallel programming models and accelerated data structures for multi-GPU systems.

Massimiliano started his career as a researcher designing programming models for exotic multi-core architectures like IBM CELL and intel IXP2 network processors. At IBM Research Lab in Dublin, Massimiliano was involved in the design of high-performing concurrent and parallel libraries for the IBM PowerEN SoC, optimizations for IBM Watson systems, and abstractions to leverage IBM P8 CAPI interface for external accelerators like FPGAs.

Massimiliano joined Autodesk as part of Project Dreamcatcher to build Autodesk’s first generative design computing system. Massimiliano focused on accelerating various solvers on Nvidia GPU and Intel Xeon Phi architectures. He also participated in the DARPA TRADES project to define a new API for multi-scale modelling.

Massimiliano received his Master’s degree in information engineering at the University of Padova and his Ph.D. in computer science at the University of Pisa.
