UPC/BSC/UIUC People

I am affiliated to the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) and the High Performance Computing research group at the Computer Architecture Department at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC). I am visiting the IMPACT Group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

At academia, we enjoy to advise and collaborate with nice people that we are very lucky to have around or have been close in our research and teaching lifetime. I am very honored to share our interests and time, and thankful to all of them.
