Software Development
Kaapi Kaapi is a C++ library that allows to execute multithreaded computation with data flow synchronization between threads. The library is able to schedule fine/medium size grain program
on distributed machine.
Contributions: Heterogeneous communications; Fault-tolerance mechanisms; Static scheduling module; Deployment organization; Dynamic reconfiguration concepts.

MVAPICH2 MVAPICH2 is a high performance MPI-2 implementation for InfiniBand, 10GigE/iWARP and RDMAoE based on MPICH2.
Contributions: Fault-tolerance and migration mechanisms; Virtual filesystems for Checkpoint/
Restart; Launcher evaluation and improvement

DPM The Discrete Particle Method (DPM) is an advanced numerical simulation tool which deals with both motion and chemical conversion of particulate material such as coal or biomass in
furnaces.
Contributions: Parallelization for both conversion and dynamics modules; Improved design
