My name is Lluís Miquel Munguía and I am a second year PhD student in Computational Science and Engineering under the supervision of Prof. David A. Bader. My main research interests cover mostly anything related to High Performance Computing and Computer Performance in general: Computer architectures (especially General Purpose GPUs, parallel computing and high performance software applications.

About me

In 2012, I obtained my B.Sc and M.Sc in Computer Engineering (Enginyeria Informàtica Superior) from the Barcelona School of Informatics (FIB), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

My final specialization in High Performance Computing came in 2011 during my stay at the Georgia Institute of Technology as an exchange student. During that time period, I started my research career under the supervision of Prof. David A. Bader. My investigation was related to graph problems. Concretely, I was focused on the parallel breadth-first search algorithm in heterogeneous architectures.

My interests in Software Engineering started early on my studies at UPC. Between 2007 and 2010, I was part of the implementation team working on an Automated UML Reasoning and Validation assistant (AuRUS) under the supervision of Profs. Ernest Teniente and Anna Queralt.

Currently, I am a PhD student in Computational Science and Engineering department at the Georgia Institute of Technology, in the High Performance Computing lab under the supervision of Prof. David A. Bader.

Personal info

I was born in Girona, Catalonia in 1989. I have always been interested in computers and electronics in general since I had my first PC. My other passions include photography, modern history, minoritary team sports like handball, computer games and my hometown above all of them.
