Peter Lindstrom is a Computer Scientist in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His primary research areas include data compression, scientific visualization, and scientific computing.
Peter has developed numerous lossy and lossless open source compressors for floating-point and mesh-based scientific data, including zfp, fpzip, and hzip, and has published more than two dozen papers on data compression over the past 15 years in top venues such as ACM SIGGRAPH, IEEE VIS, ACM/IEEE SC, and the IEEE Data Compression Conference. He leads the zfp data compression effort as part of the US DOE's Exascale Computing Project. His zfp software has been adopted by HPC I/O libraries and tools like HDF5, ADIOS, Intel IPP, and VTK-m. Peter previously served as Editor in Chief for Graphical Models. He is currently Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, Papers Chair for IEEE VIS, and a Senior Member of IEEE.
