Research Interests

My research interests are mainly in the area of scientific data management: scientific workflows, cloud computing , parallelism , provenance and data mining


Here is a list of people with whom I have mainly collaborated:

SciCumulus Cloud Workflow Engine

SciCumulus is a cloud workflow engine designed to execute workflows in parallel in cloud environments. A major goal of SciCumulus is to take a workflow specification and provide for data parallelism automatically with runtime query provenance support. Data is fragmented from a set of parameter sweep combinations or input dataset. Parallel processing is obtained in a MapReduce (Hadoop) style, however, SciCumulus engine is supported by a workflow algebra, which allows for optimization and dynamic scheduling. Some additional libraries are necessary to execute SciCumulus such as the JDBC drivers to connect with PostgreSQL database and MPJ libraries.

SciCumulus workflow engine was designed and developed at the COPPE Institute from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in the NACAD Lab under the supervision of Professor Marta Mattoso. It is currently supported by a team with members from Fluminense Federal University, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and CEFET/RJ
