Biography

I have over 10 years of research experience with INRIA (France), NTU (Singapore), Lero, IBM Research Dublin and UCD (Ireland). I am interested in understanding, designing and engineering efficient and effective large scale Distributed Systems, especially in the context of Distributed Simulations, the Cloud and (Big) Data engineering and analytics.
