Epicoco Italo

Italo Epicoco is an Assistant Professor at University of Salento, Lecce, Italy. He received a Ph.D. in 2003 in “Innovative Materials and Technologies” from ISUFI at the University of Lecce, Italy.

His main skills concern computer engineering and computer science. His research interests include the design of data mining algorithms on High-end computing architectures, High Performance and Distributed Computing. He is currently working on the optimization of numerical kernels for solving PDEs. The current application field is the Earth System Models with particular focus on ocean models.
His research activity also includes the benchmarking and evaluation of new emerging computational technologies based on GP-GPU, hybrid architectures and FPGA-based computing.

He published more than 50 papers in refereed books, journal and conference proceedings on parallel and grid computing.
