Valeriu is a postdoctoral researcher at the Johann Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in Groningen. He is involved in the GPSME project, which is developing a general toolkit for “GPUtilisation” in SME applications. The idea is to make the power of GPU hardware more easily accessible to developers by automatically translating C/C++ code into OpenCL or CUDA.

Before joining the team in Groningen, Valeriu received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest in 2011 with a thesis proposing efficient cooperation between multi-threaded and vector processors.

His general research interests lie in the field of energy-efficient computing systems, ranging from theory to architecture design and to programming such systems. His current interests revolve around software techniques to make efficient use of CPU-GPU systems and automatic ways of generating high quality parallel code, with the goal of making parallel programming easier.
