Rosa M. Badia holds a PhD on Computer Science (1994) from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC). She is the manager of the Workflows and Distributed Computing research group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). She is considered a key researcher in Parallel programming models for multicore and distributed computing due to her contribution to task-based programming models during the last 15 years. The research group focuses on PyCOMPSs/COMPSs, a parallel task-based programming for distributed computing, and its application to the development of large heterogeneous workflows that combine HPC, Big Data and ML. Another topic of research of the group is parallel machine learning library (dislib library). Dr Badia has published near 200 papers in international conferences and journals in the topics of her research. She has been very active in projects funded by the European Commission in contracts with industry. She is the IP of the EuroHPC project eFlows4HPC.
