Steven Wright is a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of York, having joined the department in July 2018. He is a member of the Real-Time and Distributed Systems research group, and his research is broadly focussed on High Performance Computing, in particular looking at the performance, programmability and energy efficiency of supercomputers and the scientific computing applications running on them. He has collaborated widely with colleagues from national laboratories, universities and industry, including the US Department of Energy, the UK Atomic Energy Authority, the York Plasma Institute, Rolls-Royce, Intel, NVIDIA, ARM and IBM.

Prior to joining York, he was a Research Fellow within the High Performance and Scientific Computing (HPSC) research group at the University of Warwick, working on projects with the Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics, Sandia National Laboratories and Rolls-Royce. He completed his Ph. D. at Warwick in 2014 with a thesis titled Monitoring, Analysis and Optimisation of I/O in Parallel Applications.

At York he has taught across the degree programme, and he is currently the Programme Lead for all on-campus CS Undergraduate Programmes. He currently leads the High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Systems (HIPC) module, and previously led the Software Testing (SOTE) module.
