Postdoctoral Scholar

University of Southern California

Information Science Institute

I’m currently Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. I’m part of the Science Automation Technologies group led by Dr Ewa Deelman where I’m working on scientific workflows management on large-scale cyber-infrastructures.

I have defended my PhD in Computer Science at École Normale Supérieure (ENS Lyon), France, in 2018, under the supervision of Anne Benoit and Yves Robert . I was part of the team ROMA at the LIP . I was mainly working on co-scheduling algorithms for large-scale applications. I was also working on scheduling and data management problems on the new many-core architectures.

Interests

  • Parallel algorithms
  • Resilience & reliability at Exascale
  • Scheduling problems in HPC and distributed computing
  • Many-core architectures
  • Scientific Workflows management

Education

  • PhD in Scheduling and Parallel Algorithms, 2018

    École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France

  • MSc in High Performance Computing with High Honors, 2015

    University of Versailles, France

  • BSc in Computer Science with Honors, 2013

    University of Lower-Normandy, France

MSc Student in High Performance Computing and Simulation

University of Versailles

Sep 2013 – Oct 2015 France

I have graduated from the high-performance computing and simulation (CHPS in french) master at the University of Versailles under the direction of Pr Nahid Emad.

  • Several semester projects:

    • Parallelization and stability study of pre-conditioned conjugate gradient (PCG) running on distributed memory systems.
    • Development of GCC plugin to enable auto-vectorization of compatible loops.
    • Parallelization of singular-value decomposition on shared and distributed memories.
