I am an Associate Professor at the Computer Architecture Department (DAC) in the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). I received my M.D. degree in 1992 and my Ph.D. degree in 1997, both at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

My research interests are focused on storage, programming models, middleware and runtimes for parallel machines and clusters of workstations. I am currently working on integration of data management and programming models for HPC.

Most of my research is done with the High Performance Computing group and at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC).

Regarding teaching, I mainly teach courses on operating-system, basic computer architecture, or programming. Most of my teaching activity is done at the Facultat d'Informàtica de Barcelona (UPC), but I also teach (or have taught) graduate courses at other universities like Universidad de Granada, Reading University, University of Liverpool, or ESADE (Business school).
