Renato Miceli joined the ICHEC team in January 2011 as a Computational Scientist. Renato obtained his BSc. in Computer Science (with honors) at the Federal University of Campina Grande (UFCG), Brazil.
He has a strong background in Distributed Computing where he worked in the Distributed Systems Laboratory as a developer for the OurGrid middleware project as well as for the Beehive File System project. He also carried out research for the Hybrid Clouds project, which aims to combine cloud computing and computational peer-to-peer grids. More recently, he administered a compute cluster at the Computational Physics Laboratory at UFCG, where he provided support to researchers and parallelised sequential code.
Renato was also a visiting research student at ICHEC for the summer internship programme where he studied the performance of an integer factorisation algorithm on GPU architectures. Apart from these involvements in project work, Renato was a teaching assistant for various courses and he was President of the Academic Center of Informatics Students (CAESI), the representative body of all Computer Science students at UFCG.
