Research

I’ve been working in the High Performance Computing (HPC) research field since 2010. My Ph.D. focussed on I/O and Parallel File Systems, and since then I have worked in various areas of HPC.

My current research largely falls in to three categories:

Performance Analysis and Optimisation
  • Performance modelling of applications
  • Algorithmic optimisations of biological applications
  • Algorithmic optimisations of physics applications
  • Evaluation of novel programming models and architectures
Parallel File Systems and I/O
  • Tracing and analysis of I/O in parallel applications
  • Optimisation of I/O operations on parallel file systems
  • Replication of sensitive I/O patterns in open environments
Energy-aware Computation
  • Analysis and modelling of energy consumption for parallel applications
  • Energy-aware optimisation of applications
