Dr. Ivan Rodero wins the IEEE TCSC Award for Excellence in Scalable Computing for Early Career Researchers

RDI2's Dr. Ivan Rodero was recently selected as a 2014 Young Achievers in Scalable Computing and awarded the IEEE TCSC Award for Excellence for Early Career Researchers. 

This IEEE TCSC Award for Excellence in Scalable Computing for Early Career Researchers recognizes up to 3 individuals worldwide who have made outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions in the field of scalable computing within 5 years of receiving their PhD degree as of January 01 of the year of the award. Awardees will be presented a plaque and will be recognized by IEEE TCSC in its website, newsletter and archives. The awards will be presented at SC14, the premiere conference in scalable computing with an attendance of over 10,000. The conference will be held in New Orleans, LA, USA during November 2014. Details of the conference can be found here.   

Ivan Rodero is an Assistant Research Professor at the Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2) and at the NSF Cloud and Autonomic Computing Center (CAC) at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. He received a PhD in computer engineering from the Technical University of Catalonia. Before joining Rutgers, he was a permanent researcher at Barcelona Supercomputing Center. His research falls into the areas of parallel and distributed computing and includes high-performance computing, energy efficiency, autonomic computing, grid/cloud computing and big data management and analytics. His current research activities are in the intersection of green computing and big data with a focus on scientific data management and address key issues to enable the scalability and energy efficiency of next generation computing systems including software/hardware exascale co-design with ongoing memory hierarchies and many-core systems. He is a senior member of IEEE, and member of ACM and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Contact him at irodero@rutgers.edu.
