In a few words

Positions currently available in the group:

She received her Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI) in 2005. After one year at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and one year at Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC) as a post-doctoral researcher, she joined the Digital Science and Technology Division, at IFPEN, in 2007. She is leading the High-performance computing project for the Scientific Division since 2016. The objective of this project is to study how to fully exploit computing resources based on parallel architectures such as x86 and ARM, with an increasing number of cores, accelerated or not by GPUs, in order to propose robust and performing solutions for IFPEN applications. She participates in the development and maintenance of several software packages and prototypes like Wind Turbine application using LBM, linear algebra library; MCGSolver, adapted for different hardware architecture, reservoir dynamical simulator, etc. Her main research areas are high-performance computing, performance analyses, code optimization and linear algebra solver.
