Madhav Marathe is a professor of Computer Science and director of the Network Dynamics and Simulation Science Laboratory. He obtained his Bachelor of Technology degree in 1989 in Computer Science and Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, and his Ph.D. in 1994 in Computer Science from the University at Albany under the supervision of Professors Harry B. Hunt III and Richard E. Stearns. He holds adjunct appointments at Chalmers University and the Indian Institute of Public Health.
Before coming to Virginia Tech in 2005, he worked in the Basic and Applied Simulation Science group (CCS-5) in the Computer and Computational Sciences division at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Serving as a team leader in a theory-based, advanced simulation program, he developed new tools to represent, design, and analyze extremely large socio-technical and critical infrastructure systems.
He has published more than 300 research articles in peer reviewed journals, conference proceedings, and books, and has over fifteen years of experience in project leadership and technology development. His research interests include: design and analysis of algorithms, high-performance computing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, telecommunication systems, computational epidemiology and social science.
Marathe is the 2011 Inaugural George Michael Distinguished Scholar at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. In 2013 he became an Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) Fellow for contributions to high-performance computing algorithms and software environments for simulating and analyzing socio-technical networks. Also in 2013, he was named an Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Fellow for contributions to socio-technical network science. In 2014, he was honored as an American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS) Fellow for contributions to high-performance computing algorithms and software environments. In 2018, he was named a Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Fellow for contributions to high performance computing algorithms and software systems for network science and public health epidemiology.
Marathe is the recipient of the Distinguished Copyright award for TRANSIMS software, Los Alamos National Laboratory's achievement award, a recipient of the University at Albany Distinguished Alumni Award, the 2010 Award for Research Excellence at the Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech, and recipient of a 2018 College of Engineering Dean's Award for Excellence in Research.
