Katia Leal

Ph.D. (2010) from Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM). M.E. (2002) in Computer Science from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). Member of the GSyC department at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC) since 2003. Also, former collaborator of the DSA group at UCM (2005-2010). I've done research in grid computing at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN (2007). My research areas are operating and distributed systems, also grid and high performance computing.
