Shumpei Shiina

I am a PhD student at Taura Laboratory, Department of Information and Communication Engineering, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, The University of Tokyo, Japan.

Research

My primary research interest is in parallel and distributed computing systems that enable easy and efficient computation on massively parallel computers, from multi-core CPUs to clusters or supercomputers.

Keywords: task parallelism, threads, dynamic load balancing, work stealing, PGAS, etc.
