Horacio González-Vélez


Horacio González-Vélez is currently a lecturer with the School of Computing at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen.

After working for Silicon Graphics and Sun Microsystems, he completed a PhD in Informatics at the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Murray Cole. His doctoral research addressed the introduction of adaptiveness into structured parallelism constructs (algorithmic skeletons) to dynamically improve the overall performance of parallel programs in computational grids and clusters, leading to substantial contributions in the scheduling of divisible workloads and structured parallelism in general.

He also had a post-doc stint at Edinburgh under Bonnie Webber, contributing to the multi-site distributed agent architecture for brain tumour patient-case exchange in the EC FP6 project HealthAgents.

On the social side, he is an amateur Mexican cook who enjoys discussing history and social facts with his Czech wife, answering the tricky questions posed by his smart preteen "Czechican" daughter, and running after his pre-school "Fifer" son.
