Project: GROMACS development

I manage the development at KTH and SciLifeLab of the high-performance molecular simulation package GROMACS. GROMACS is used by thousands of researchers all over the world to do dynamical simulations of condensed matter, particularly of biomolecules, because of its extremely fast code, wide range of features, quality documentation, active user group, and suite of analysis software. Our team uses C++11, CUDA and OpenCL, including a lot of low-level SIMD and other performance code to write some of the highest quality simulation software to be found. We are backed up by rigorous pre-commit testing by our Jenkins instance (, and formal pre-submit code review on Gerrit (
