Collaborator


Yolanda Becerra holds a PhD in Computer Science since 2006 from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC). She is an associate professor at the Computer Architecture Department of the UPC and an associate researcher in the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). Since 1998, she lectures courses on Operating Systems in several schools of the UPC and in the Masters program of the Computer Architecture Department of the UPC. In 2007 she joined to the “Autonomic Systems and eBusiness platforms” research line in the BSC. In this research group she is conducting research about resource management strategies for BigData applications in the Cloud. Since 2008 she is involved in a research collaboration project with IBM Research, focused on the development of non-centralized resource management strategies and mechanisms.

Research Interests: 

Her current research focuses on resource management strategies for BigData applications in the Cloud and faces three different challenges a) defining policies that enables Distributed Data Stores (e.g. NoSQL databases) to meet high level performance goals of BigData applications, that are a combination of consistency levels, energy consumption and response times; b) designing a non-centralized highly scalable resource management architecture; and c) to define interfaces with in-memory databases.
