Jesus Labarta (BSC)

Jesus Labarta is full professor on Computer Architecture at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) since 1990. Since 1981 he has been lecturing on computer architecture, operating systems, computer networks and performance evaluation. His research interest has been centered on parallel computing, covering areas from multiprocessor architecture, memory hierarchy, parallelizing compilers, operating systems, parallelization of numerical kernels, performance analysis and
prediction tools.

Since 2005 he is responsible of the Computer Science research Department within the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), His major directions of current work relate to performance analysis tools, programming models, in particular developing the StarSs model (with implementations for different multicore and accelerator nodes such as Cells, GPUs, SMP) interconnection networks, node architecture and resource management.
