Rosa M Badia holds a PhD in Computer Science (1994) from the Technical University of Catalonia. She manages the Workflows and Distributed Computing research group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. Her current research focus is programming models for complex platforms (from edge, fog, to Clouds and large HPC systems). The group has been developing StarSs programming model for more than 10 years, with high application developer adoption. Currently the group focuses on PyCOMPSs/COMPSs, an instance of the programming model for distributed computing including Cloud, and its application to parallelize Big Data and Analytics. Dr Badia has published nearly 200 papers in the topics of her research. She has been very active in projects funded by the European Commission, participating in around 20 projects and with industry contacts (Fujitsu, IBM and Intel).
