Boyu Zhang's Homepage

Short biographical: My name is Boyu Zhang. I am currently a PhD candidate mentored by Dr. Michela Taufer in the Global Computing Lab at the University of Delaware (UD). I earned my M. S. in Computer and Information Sciences from UD. Before I came to UD, I spent a year it the Computer Science Department of the University of Texas at San Antonio. I obtained my B. E. in Computer Science and Technology from the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, China.

My research is in High Performance Computing (HPC) and focuses on big data analytics (i.e., classification and clustering), scientific applications (i.e., RNA secondary structures classification, protein-ligand docking, and protein-folding), and the MapReduce paradigm with its several frameworks (i.e., Hadoop, MapReduce-MPI, and DataMPI).
