Parallel programming research group

Marco Aldinucci | Parallel programming research group

Marco Aldinucci is an assistant professor at Computer Science Department of the University of Torino since 2008. Previously, he has been researcher at University of Pisa and Italian National Research Agency. He is the author of over a hundred papers in international journals and conference proceeding (Google scholar h-index 23). He has been participating in over 20 national and international research projects concerning parallel and autonomic computing. He is the recipient of the HPC Advisory Council University Award 2011, the NVidia Research award 2013, the IBM Faculty Award 2015. He has been leading the “Low-Level Virtualization and Platform-Specific Deployment” workpackage within the EU-STREP FP7 ParaPhrase (Parallel Patterns for Adaptive Heterogeneous Multicore Systems) project, the GPGPU workpackage within the IMPACT project (Innovative Methods for Particle Colliders at the Terascale), and he is the contact person for University of Torino for the European Network of Excellence on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation. In the last year he delivered 5 invited talks in international workshops (March 2012 – March 2013). He co-designed, together with Massimo Torquati, the FastFlow programming framework and several other programming frameworks and libraries for parallel computing. His research is focused on parallel and distributed computing.

Misale | Parallel programming research group Claudia Misale received her MSc degree cum laude in Computer Science at University of Calabria in 2012 and is currently a PhD student at Computer Science Deparment of the University of Torino, Italy. She has been participating to the FastFlow project. Her research is focused on high-performance tools for bioinformatics.

Tordini | Parallel programming research groupFabio Tordini  received his MSc degree in Computer Science at the University of Camerino in 2010 and is currently a PhD candidate at the Computer Science Deparment of the University of Torino, Italy. He has been participating to the FastFlow project. His research is focused on memory allocation for shared-memory platforms, non-blocking synchronisation and patterns for parallel computing.

droccoMaurizio Drocco is a PhD student in Computer Science at University of Turin. He is the author of over 10 papers in international journals and conference proceeding (Google scholar h-index). He has been participating to the FastFlow and the BioBITs projects. He is the maintainer of CWC Simulator, a fast bio simulation workflow.

Paolo VivianiPaolo Viviani is a PhD student in Computer Science at University of Turin. He holds a grant founded by the Noesis Solution NV. He main research topics are the development and deployment of machine learning methodologies on heterogeneous hardware and low-power and cost-effective computing architectures.
