Jon Summers

Research Leader

RISE

Jon Summers has worked on several government and industry funded projects using computation, managed compute clusters to support research, and chaired the University of Leeds High-Performance Computing User Group for 20 years. In the last ten years Jon’s research has focused on many thermal and energy management projects within Data Centres, Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning and industrial sectors. These have included liquid cooled IT research activities, focussing on data centre and microprocessor scales, having transformed into opportunities of integrated digital infrastructure research at the RISE ICE test and demo data center facility, which has testbeds supporting industry and academia
