Biographical Sketch

I joined the Department of Computer Science at UTEP in January 2005. My research interests include new algorithms and architectures for resource- and time-expensive applications in computational chemistry, physics, and biology; effective migration of large scale simulations to global computing systems based on public resources; and performance analysis, -modeling and -optimization of large scale simulations on heterogeneous, distributed systems.

I earned my MS in Computer Engineering from the University of Padova and my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH. I was a post-doc supported by the La Jolla Interfaces in Science Training Program also called LJIS at UC San Diego, the San Diego Supercomputer Center, and The Scripps Research Institute.
