My research interests concern mainly visualization techniques that are destined to the analysis of complex applications. I focus on the post-mortem analysis of execution traces, which contains information about the events and the resources of the application. The visualisation methods I propose are based on data and visual aggregations, which reduce trace complexity and provide a scalable representation. These methods are efficient to detect anomalies that occur during the execution on multimedia applications on embedded systems, but also in parallel applications performing scientific computing on grids.

Here is a summary of topics I am interested in:

  • Performance Visualization Analysis
  • Data Aggregation
  • Trace Management and Analysis Infrastructures
  • Multimedia and Real-Time Embedded Applications
  • High-Performance Computing/Distributed Systems/Parallel Applications
