Jordi García Almiñana, PhD

Associate Professor


 

Short bio

Dr. Jordi Garcia is an associate professor in the Department of Computer Architecture (Departament d'Arquitectura de Computadors, DAC) at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, UPC BarcelonaTech. He has a master degree and a PhD degree, both in Computer Science from the UPC Barcelona Tech. Jordi Garcia joined the DAC in 1991. From 2001 to 2004 he was the vice-dean of university extension at the Barcelona School of Informatics (Facultat d'Informàtica de Barcelona, FIB), from 2004 to 2010 he was the vice-dean, head of studies, also at the FIB, and from 2010 to 2013 he was the academic director of the Center of Cooperation for Development. He is currently the rector's delegate of the Tongji University SINO campus, in China.

His current research interests are cloud computing management, new management strategies for smart scenarios and optimization of Big Data processing. Other research activities have been developed in the areas of massively parellel systems, optimization techniques for supercomputing, and the optimization of run-time environments. He is also interested in the operating systems internal implementation, as well as the run-time interaction between the operating system (Linux) and the virtual environments (Java Virtual Machine).

He is currently involved in several projects related with the sustainability of the technology. In fact, he is the academic responsible of the sustainablility skill in the Computer Science degree at the FIB. Jordi Garcia is also interested in the innovation of education in the computer science field. Actually, he was member of the team that received an award for the educational quality in 2005.
