My research focuses on exploiting novel and consolidated parallel and vector architectures (e.g., x86, Arm, RISC-V) for scientific applications, such as molecular dynamics (GROMACS) and genomics.

I collaborate with the High-Performance Domain-Specific Architectures group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC).
