Welcome to my personal web page. Currently, I am a post-doctoral researcher of the Bonfire Project at Cesga. My research interest is related to Information Technologies and their application to Monte Carlo simulation of MOSFET devices.
Due to the aggressive scaling of devices more complex simulation models are required and therefore, longer computational times. The reduction of the device dimensions also increases the impact of variability effects in their performance. To account for these effects statistical analysis are mandatory, which greatly increase the computational cost.
From the computational point of view simulation of semiconductor devices has two challenges:
(i) Decreasing the execution time without limiting the complexity of models.
(ii) Increasing the available computational resources to perform studies of statistical fluctuations.
In this context, my research is focused on the evaluation of different alternatives related to Information Technologies:
(i) Parallelization and optimization of Monte Carlo simulators in order to decrease the execution time.
(ii) Evaluation of new infrastructures such as Grid and Cloud.
From the evaluation of new infrastructures and the involvement in several projects have risen new research lines in Cloud Computing related to the IaaS and SaaS model.
