About me

I currently work on a burst buffer system (IO accelerator on High Performance Computers) as a technical leader in Quality Assurance at DDN storage.

For this purpose, I am designing and developing from scratch an HPC (High Performance Computing) oriented framework to ease test automation in a distributed environment. The tool includes a scalable system deployment on Slurm and Amazon EC2 (up to 1000 nodes), a complete API to execute arbitrary code and scripts remotely, a performance testing system, a chart generator, a defect reproducer and many other internal modules.

I previously worked as an expert engineer and a project manager in computer science at the Exascale Computing Laboratory (Intel).

The main purpose of my Team and I was the design and implementation of the CTI tool. CTI stands for Codelet Tuning Infrastructure. It is a research tool used to perform Application Characterization analysis. For more information regarding CTI, please check out the official website.

I am also in charge of the System Administration lectures and the UNIX tutorials at the ISTY engineering school, Versailles / Vélizy-Villacoublay.

I obtained a five-year degree (equivalent to the European master degree of computer science) in this school, and was ranked first during the three years.
