Alex Ramirez, PhD


Associated professor

I am currently on leave of absence from UPC and BSC. This page is not currently maintained.
Apologies for any inconvenience.

I am Tenured Associated Professor at Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, and Computer Architecture Research Manager at Barcelona Supercomputing Center where I lead the the Mont-Blanc EU project, targeting Exascale HPC systems, and developing the first HPC cluster prototypes built on low-power ARM processors. I have graduated 10 PhD students, and published over 150 papers in international conferences and journals (H index 24) in compiler optimizations, processor microarchitecture, multicore architecture, multithreading processors, parallelizations strategies, and energy-efficient cluster computing. I have participated as Principal Investigator in 11 European projects, and 7 industrially funded projects. My research has been featured in The Wall Street Journal,, Financial Times, Scientific Computing, Scientific Computing World, HPC Wire, Slashdot, ComputerWorld, and others. In 2010 I received the first Agustin de Betancourt y molina Award to a Young Researcher by the Spanish Academy of Engineering. In 2012 my team received the HiPEAC Technology Transfer Award for the development of the CARMA (CUDA on ARM) developer kit.
