About Us

Minimal Metrics was founded by Philip Mucci in 2012, with members of his previous company Samara Technology Group, which he founded in 2008. Samara Technology Group consisted of a number of Philip’s colleagues from SiCortex, makers of a low-power, high-density, massively-parallel, family of supercomputers. Philip served in a variety of development, engineering and customer engagement roles at SiCortex. He is known as the founder of PAPI, a library that provides details on the innermost workings of microprocessors (and many other components.) Philip has a masters in computer science from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (under Dr. Jack Dongarra at the Innovative Computing Laboratory) and received his bachelors degree from the Johns Hopkins University. He is originally from Stow, Massachusetts and splits his time between Navarre, Florida and Kalmar, Sweden.
