Senior Research Scientist, Barcelona Supercomputing Cente
Dr. Leonardo Bautista Gomez is a Senior Research Scientist at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center where he works in multiple H2020 European projects related to resilience, energy efficiency and multilevel storage systems for high performance computing. In 2016 he was awarded with a European Marie Curie fellowship on Deep-memory Ubiquity, Resilience and Optimization. In addition, he was awarded the 2016 IEEE TCSC Award for Excellence in Scalable Computing (Early Career Researcher). Before moving to BSC he was a Postdoctoral researcher for three years at the Argonne National Laboratory, where he investigated data corruption detection techniques and error propagation. Prior to that, he did his PhD. in resilience for supercomputers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. He developed a scalable multilevel checkpointing library called Fault Tolerance Interface (FTI) to guarantee application resilience at extreme scale. For this work, he was awarded the 2011 ACM/IEEE George Michael Memorial High Performance Computing Ph.D. Fellow at Supercomputing Conference 2011 (SC11), Honorable Mention; and a Special Certificate of Recognition for achieving a perfect score at the Supercomputing Conference 2011 (SC11) for the paper : FTI : High Performance Fault Tolerance Interface for Hybrid Systems. In Japan, he was awarded the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), Research Fellowships for Young Scientists (Doctoral Course). Before moving to Tokyo Tech, he graduated in Master for Distributed Systems and Applications from the Paris 6 University, Pierre & Marie Curie. Prior to this, he obtained a Bachelor in Computer Science from the Paris 6 University, Pierre & Marie Curie.
