Jesus Carretero is a Full Professor of Computer Architecture and Technology at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain), where he is responsible for that knowledge area since 2000. He got and Informatics master from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain) in 1988 and the PhD in Informatics also from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain) in 1995.
His research activity is centered on high-performance computing systems, data-intensive computing, large-scale distributed systems, and real-time systems. He is Action Chair of the IC1305 COST Action "Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing Systems (NESUS)", and he is also currently involved in the FP7 program REPARA "Reengineering and Enabling Performance And poweR of Applications". He has participated and leaded several national and international research projects in data management areas, founded by Madrid Regional Government, Spanish Education Ministry and the European union. As a results of those activities, Prof. Carretero has been researching since 1993 on large scale parallel and distributed storage systems and big-data management optimizations in computing systems. Currently, his research interest is centered on high speed data management in clusters and clouds, including large data volumes and real-time constraints.
Prof. Carretero is Associated Editor of the journal Computer and Electrical Engineering and International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks. He has published more than 200 papers in journals and international conferences, has been editor of several books of proceedings, and guest editor for special issues of journals as International Journal of Parallel Processing, Cluster Computing, Computers and Electrical Engineering, Future Generation Computing Systems, and New Generation Computing. He is coauthor of several text books related to Operating Systems and Computer Architecture. He has participated in many conference organization committees, and he has been General chair of CSE 2105, HPCC 2011, and MUE 2012, and Program Chair of ISPA 2012, EuroMPI 2013, C4Bio 2014, and ESAA 2014.
He was teaching in Facultad de Informática of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain) since 1989 until 1997. In 1997 and 1998 he was a visiting scholar at the NorthWestern University of Chicago (Ill, USA). He works currently at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, where he has been teaching since 2000. He has also been Director of the Master in Administration and Management of Computer Systems, which he founded in 2004.
Prof. Carretero is a senior member of the IEEE Computer Society and member of the ACM. He also serves and has served as a Technology Advisor and in applied projects with several companies such as RENFE, TELYCE, EADS, INDRA, SIEMENS or ISOLUX, developing research and innovation projects. He is a project reviewer for several Spanish National Research Programs and also for the European Union (FP6, FP7, H2020).
