Research activities

I am mainly interested in algorithm design and scheduling techniques for large-scale distributed platforms. Here are some recent work topics:

  • Algorithms for heterogeneous clusters and grid platforms.
  • Multi-criteria scheduling for (pipelined) workflows.
  • Linear algebra kernels on multicores.
  • Fault-tolerant algorithms, resilience
  • Stochastic scheduling
  • ...
