Alejandro Chacón

I am a PhD student in the Computer Architecture and Operating Systems department at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, advised by the professors Juan Carlos Moure and Antonio Espinosa. My research interests include computer architecture and parallel optimizations for heterogeneous HPC systems. Currently I am optimizing on GPU several bioinformatic algorithms, such as FM-Index and Myers, that are the building blocks for a wide number of bioinformatic applications. We are actively collaborating with the Algorithm Development Group from CNAG. I received an Phd Fellowship grant from UAB in 2011.
