I am interested on developing new throughput-oriented software tools for simulating bio-inspired computing models, specifically, for membrane (P) systems. The massively parallelism that they inherently present is a challenge to be efficiently simulated. Tools from High Performance Computing become essential for this purpose. GPUs, using GPGPU and CUDA, are new massively data-parallel processors that are well suited to simulate P systems.
I am also interested on developing new simulation algorithms for P systems, adapting and implementing them to CUDA architecture. Other topics that I would like to study are genome assembly and annotation using High Performance Computing and GPU computing, new P systems based models for biology and physics, bio-inspired design of hardware, simulation of P systems in other parallel platforms, and how this simulators can be used in order to develop a P system implementation.
In summary, my research topics are:
Visiting HPC-LAB research group, at the NTNU (Trondheim, Norway), headed by Prof. Anne C. Elster, from July 2011-September 2011. I acknowledge the grant from "IV plan propio" of the University of Seville, and the support of the HPC-Lab group, specially to Anne C. Elster.
