Dr. Phillip Colella received his A.B. (1974), M.A. (1976) and Ph.D. (1979) degrees from the University of California at Berkeley, all in applied mathematics. He has been a staff scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and a Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of California at Berkeley.

He is currently a Senior Scientist in the Computational Research Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and a Professor in Residence in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at UC Berkeley.

He has developed high-resolution and adaptive numerical algorithms for partial differential equations and numerical simulation capabilities for a variety of applications in science and engineering. He has also participated in the design of high-performance software infrastructure for scientific computing, including software libraries, frameworks, and programming languages.

Honors and awards include the IEEE Sidney Fernbach Award for high-performance computing in 1998, the SIAM/ACM prize (with John Bell) for computational science and engineering in 2003, election to the US National Academy of Sciences in 2004, and election to the inaugural class of SIAM Fellows in 2009.
