Research interests

  • To improve usability and scalability of scientific parallel applications, workflows, and programming models. This includes performance evaluation and modelling of data-intensive applications; techniques for increasing the performance of network communication and I/O operations for distributed computing systems; abstract models to develop and to use data-intensive methods independently of the computing resources and the middleware systems; automatic parallelisation techniques for scaling data-intensive applications; scientific workflow management systems and data-streaming workflows.
