Brief Bio

I am a permanent Research Scientist at the University of Luxembourg. In 2010, I graduated from the Grenoble University (France) with a PhD on Computer Science. My PhD work was on Fault Tolerance and Dynamic Reconfiguration for large scale distributed applications. From October 2010 to September 2011, I was a postdoc Researcher at the Ohio State University (USA) under the supervision of Prof. D.K. Panda in the Network Based Computing Lab (NOWLAB). During that time, I contributed to the MVAPICH project, a High Performance implementation of MPI for Infiniband clusters. In October 2010, I joined the University of Luxembourg, first as a Postdoc Research in the Parallel Computing & Optimisation Group (PCOG) of Prof. Pascal Bouvry. Now I’m part of the Luxembourg XDEM Research Centre (LuXDEM) and works under the supervision of Prof. Bernhard Peters on the optimisation and parallelization of eXtended Discrete Element Method (XDEM). My research interests are High Performance Computing and Computational Sciences, and in particular parallelization, optimization, debugging and coupling of scientific HPC applications.

Research Interests
