Research fields: High Performance Computing and Computer Graphics

My current research activities mainly focus on these two areas of interest:

- High performance data analytics (HPDA and Big Data), applied to scientific data from numerical simulations to get an in-situ/in-transit data analysis of these data.

- IA applied to computer graphics (mainly, point-based rendering) and multimedia
