My name is Sebastien Varrette and I'm currently Research Associate at the University of Luxembourg.

I'm thus one of the two permanent researchers within the Parallel Computing and Optimization Group (PCOG) lead by Prof. Pascal Bouvry I joined in 2007. I'm conducting research with a focus on the security and performance of parallel and distributed computing platforms, such as HPC clusters or Cloud Computing infrastructures. Another large part of my time is dedicated to the management of the UL HPC Platform and of the associated expert team of system administrators I lead since 2008.

I'm active in various scientific committees (IEEE CloudNet, CloudCom, OPTIM, Europar, PCGrid etc.) and technical workgroups (Grid5000, WP leader in various national or EU projects such as Green@Cloud (FNR/CNRS), EvoPerf (UL), ISHOP (FNR/NCBiT/POLLUX) etc.) I take part and represents Luxembourg for the management committee for several EU projects, such as the COST action IC1305 "Network for Sustainable Ul- trascale Computing (NESUS)".

Up to now, I co-authored four books and more than nine book chapters in computer science. I also wrote about 80 research or popularization articles in scientific journals, or international conference proceedings. You can find more details at this level in my Publications section.
