Professor Karim Djemame


I am interested in distributed systems research, particularly the development of fundamental principles and practical methods for problems that are computationally challenging and/or require unusual kinds of computing resources. It focuses on HPC/Cloud/Grid-based services to enable organisations to efficiently manage their high-end computing resources and provide Quality of Service.
