Curriculum Vitae

Pedro Velho received both degrees B.Sc. in Computer Science in 2004 and M.Sc. in Computer Science in 2006 by the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS/Brazil). He is currently working in conjuction with Prof. Arnaud Legrand at Grenoble University, France in a Ph.D. thesis upon the simulation and validation of large-scale distributed systems simulation. Pedro Velho is also an active member of Latin America HPC research network staffing the committee of the two main international scientific manifestations in Latin America CLCAR (Conferencia Latino-Americana de Alto-Rendimiento) and SC-Camp (Super Computing Camp). He is an active member of the USS-SimGrid ANR project and the CAPES/Brazil collageship program. His research interest areas are: parallel and distributed computing, performance evaluation and simulation.
