Manager of the Workflows and Distributed Computing Group, Barcelona Supercomputing Center
Dr. Rosa M. Badia is the manager of the Workflows and Distributed Computing group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). Her current research interests include programming models for distributed computing platforms and its integration with novel storage technologies. Her group has been proposing the task-based StarSs programming model, and she is currently focused in the PyCOMPSs/COMPSs instance of this model for distributed computing platforms. This model can be used for the definition of medium-grain task-based applications of for the definition of coarse grain workflows, which can combine tasks written in other parallel programming models, such as OpenMP or MPI. The model also plays well with new concepts for persistent storage, and are integrated with the dataClay and Hecuba solutions. Her group has been very active in the participation on European funded projects. Dr Badia has published more than 200 articles in international journals and international conferences of the area.
