Iain Duff is a CCLRC Senior Fellow in the Computational Science
and Engineering Department.

After completing his D Phil at Oxford, he was a Harkness Fellow in the United
States visiting Stony Brook and Stanford. He then spent two years lecturing at
the University of Newcastle upon Tyne before joining the Harwell Laboratory
where he became Group Leader of Numerical Analysis in 1986. In 1990,
the Group moved to the Atlas Centre at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
He has had several extended visits to Argonne National Laboratory,
the Australian National University, the University of Colorado at Boulder,
Stanford University, and the University of Ume\aa.

He is the Project Leader for the
Parallel Algorithms Group at CERFACS
in Toulouse and is a Visiting Professor at the University of Strathclyde.
He is a life Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
He is a member of
SIAM (USA), SMAI (France), SBMAC (Brazil) and is Editor or Associate Editor
of twelve journals in numerical analysis or scientific computation.

He is on the Council of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications
and is an IMA representative on the Board of ICIAM. He is chairman of
the Board of Trustees of SIAM. He was elected as a Fellow of the Royal
Society of Edinburgh in 2006.
