I am a research fellow at EPCC working on several nationally- and internationally-funded projects. Before that, I worked as a Senior Data Scientist at the British Geological Survey, as a Senior Research Associate at the Data Intensive Research Group of the University Edinburgh, and as a Research and Teaching Assistant at the Computer Architecture Group of University Carlos III Madrid.
The main goal of my current research is to bring together data-intensive and high-performance computing. This objective can be broken down into two complementary research topics: The first one is to develop adaptive communication techniques which optimise the data movement for data-intensive applications at different HPC levels. The second one is to facilitate the development of scientific workflows that can by run in many HPC environments while hiding the complexity to the users, and to develop adaptive and automated scientific gateway to allow users to share workflows and data, and which allow them to submit their computational tasks to the most appropriate HPC resource depending on the characteristics of their tasks and the HPC resources available.
