Magister in Mathematics, October 1998, Nicholas Copernicus University, Torun, Poland
I worked on many layers of Grid and Web Services: from high level (adaptive orchestration of services) to low level (performance of XML parsers). Selected projects:
Workflows in Grids and Scientific Computing: I am investigating the applicability of business and Web Services based workflows for Grid computing.
Performance and Best Practices for Grid and Web Services: I am looking into how Grid and Web Services should be used to take full advantage of their capabilities:
