Research Statement

My research entails the deployment of structured parallelism approaches in heterogeneous computing systems such as clouds, grids, and clusters. Dr Gonzalez-Velez also has a strong background in high-performance and enterprise computing, nurtured both in the academy and in industry. This diverse experience has led to aspirations of employing generic parallel patterns (skeletons) to the solution of domain-specific problems in computational science to develop a tight integration between specific computational problems, particularly in the biomedical and physical sciences, and their specific patterns of computation and communication.
