photo-research Research

My research interests include simulation of parallel and distributed systems, scheduling, and research on production grids.

I am involved in the following projects: and was involved in those projects:


In a previous life, I was assistant professor at the Université Henri Poincaré, Nancy 1
I made a lot of teaching there.

When time allows (okay, when I'm procrastinating), I do some coding. I'm a happy member of the SimGrid development core team in charge of the SimDag API.

I'm also putting some stuff on github, mostly under the CRAPL license.
