Justine Rochas

I have been a PhD student from fall 2013 to fall 2016 and I graduated on the 22th of September, 2016. I belonged to the SCALE team in I3S lab (Sophia Antipolis, France), where I was advised by Ludovic Henrio. My topic has considered the domain of programming models and middlewares for parallel and distributed computing.

My PhD thesis can be found here, and the slides of my PhD defense here.
