Short Bio

Antonio Vilches earned a B.S. in Computer Engineering in 2010 and a M.S. in Computer Sciences in 2012, both from the University of Malaga. In June 2010 he earned a M.S. Degree in Education from the University of Malaga as well. After finishing his Masters he started to work as Researcher in the same University thank to a scholarship given by AndaluciaTech . Then he moved to the Industry and worked in a project of high demand web services, he was responsible to keep working a web service which was used by millions of people, also he developed an automatic deployment system for this web application using a novel technology called Puppets . After that year he decided to go deeply in his first research and he went back again in the University of Malaga, where he started his Phd focusing on parallel patterns for Heterogeneous Systems and enegy-efficient computing under the supervision of Prof. R. Asenjo and Prof. A. Navarro.

Antonio Vilches has certain experience related to computer architecture. He studied on computer technology, organization and architecture, multiprocessors, distributed architectures, concurrent programming, compilers, vector and parallel computing. For his B.S. thesis he was working with multiprocessors developing irregular benchmarks as BarnesHut with TBB and OpenMP libraries and studing the scalability while comparing performance with previous pthread versions. Later on, he worked in an heterogeneous solution for his M.S. thesis, he developed an scheduler to orchestrate work between CPUs and GPUs, he was studing several ways of work sharing among devices based on a work stealing technique.

At the moment Antonio Vilches is researhing in parallel patterns running on heterogeneous machines, he is developing mechanisms to distribute the workload between the idle hardware resource using a smart way, moreover he is researching on ways to perform energy efficient computations in order to reduce energy consumption in embedded mobile processors.
