Generalities
I am currently holding an Associate Professor position in the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in the department of Computer Science.
I used to be a post-doctoral researcher position at The Ohio State University in the BioMedical Informatics in Umit Catalyurek's High Performance Computing group.
I did my PhD in Computer Science under the supervision of Denis Trystram as part of the MOAIS team at LIG laboratory in Grenoble (France). My PhD manuscript is entitled "Approximation Algorithms for Multi-Objective Scheduling. Application to Parallel and Embedded Systems" and is available (in french).
I frequently serve in the organization and program committee of various conferences such as IPDPS, SC, HiPC, ICPP, See a complete list here.
I am frequently reviewing papers for the following journals : Journal of Scheduling, Parallel Computing, Journal of Supercomputing, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, Parallel Computing and Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing.
I am a co guest editor for Parallel Computing special issue on heterogeneity.
Projects available
I am interested in advising students (undergraduate and graduate) on various projects. Check out the available projects for details.
Research Interest
My research is focused on combinatorial optimization problems for high performance computing.
Theoretically guaranteed heuristics
Most relevant optimization problems in high performance computing are NP-Hard. It is unlikely that a polynomial optimal algorithm can be designed. However, it does not mean that reasonable solutions can not be found. Approximation algorithms are a class of polynomial heuristics which produce solutions whose objective values are guaranteed to be close to the optimal value (either in relative or absolute terms). Approximation algorithms measure the quality of a solution by measuring the degradation in term of objective value. Resource augmentation algorithms measure the quality of a solution in term of amount of extra resource that need to be allocated to compensate for the non optimality of the solution.
See for instance: [P1], [J18], [C69], [C58], [C61], [C66], [C65], [C68].
Multi objective optimization
When systems got more complex, the notion of performance becomes less clearly defined. It is therefore not sufficient to optimize a single performance index. For instance, when computing systems become larger, the appearance of system failure is more likely. Therefore, the performance of the system must include reliability consideration such as probability of failure or number of fault the system can tolerate. Another example is the importance of taking the energy into account to increase battery life of mobile device.
When optimizing more than one objective function, optimality is no longer well defined. The notion Pareto dominance defines a partial order between the solutions. Pareto optimal solutions are the set of solution that can not be improved on one objective without degrading another one.
See for instance: [P1], [B2], [J18], [J19], [C61], [C66], [C65], [C68].
Spatial partitioning
In many distributed applications, the computations take place in a discrete 2D or 3D space. At each iteration of the application, the state of each cell is updated using the state of neighbor cells in a stencil fashion. In applications such as particle-in-cell simulation and raycasting, the computation time required to update each cell may vary in function of well known parameters (such as the distribution of the particle in the field or the position of the objects in the scene). Spatial partitioning focuses on distributing such applications on a parallel computer. The cells must be allocated to the processor meticulously by taking into account both the load balance between the processors and the communication time between two adjacent cells. Methods should also take into account the possible dynamic aspects of such systems. To solve this problem, we are proposing new rectangular decomposition algorithms and analyze their behavior both theoretically and practically.
See for instance: [J14] [C55], [R10], [T14], [T16].
Cluster Scheduling
Clusters are a common platform in high performance computing. It is frequent that more than one application run at a given time on a single cluster. From that fact arise the problem of allocating a slice of the cluster to each application. Cluster scheduling is the field that establishes models to differentiate between possible allocations and provided algorithms to solve them. Hot topics in cluster scheduling include moldable tasks, multi user scheduling, fairness, stretch and reservation.
See for instance: [P1], [C69], [C58], [C61], [C66], [C65].
Application Scheduling
When executing an application on a parallel system, one must decide on which execution unit each computation will occur. Application scheduling handles that question by proposing different model for the application and for the platform. A common way to model applications is the DAG scheduling model. Computations are grouped into tasks and precedence dependencies are given as a graph. Provided computation time for the tasks and communication time for each precedence dependency, the problem is to map the tasks on the computing units to minimize the application execution time. Other models consider applications that handles flows of data. The execution is then consider in its steady state and the goal is to maximize the application throughput.
See for instance: [P1], [J18], [J19], [C69], [C58], [C66], [C68], [R11].
Large Scale Graph Mining
Graphs are a common representation of complex data. They are commonly used to represent social interactions, scientific citation, traffic patterns, consumer choices, sparse linear algebra computations, etc.. With the growth of the Internet, the amount of data available grew exponentially in all domains. Facebook has more than 1 billion users. Amazon has hundreds of million of customers and products. Millions of scientific publications have been written. I am interested in developing new models and algorithms to enable the analysis of very large graphs. I am currently interested in in analysis such as link prediction, recommendation, popularity measures and community detections.
See for instance: [R8], [C48], [C50], [R7], [C42], [C44]
High Performance Graph Algorithms and Sparse Matrix Computations
The size of the graphs and the complexity of the analysis required on them make the study of algorithms on large graphs relevant both in practice and as a case study. Because sparse matrices and graphs are algrebraically similar, most of the techniques that apply on one also apply on the other one. I am interested in optimizing graph kernels and sparse matrices computation using high performance computing techniques such as parallel computing, distributed computing, accelerators but also in algorithm engineering.
See for instance: [C38], [C47], [C54], [C51], [C52], [], [C44]
Middleware
It is no doubt that, with enough work, High Performance Computing experts will achieve most the available performance of a system toward a particular application. To enable non-HPC experts to utilize computing resources to their maximum, tools such as middleware and programming models were developed. Each tool targets a particular class of platform and applications and with different concerns in mind. I believe it is of key importance to study the properties of middleware and programming models to identify their strengths and weaknesses.
See for instance: [J15], [C57], [C62], [C49], [C46]
