Loïc Pottier, Ph.D

Computer Scientist


PhD., Computer Science, École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France
M.S., Computer Science, University of Versailles, France
B.S., Computer Science, University of Lower-Normandy, France


I’m currently a computer scientist at the Information Sciences Institute which is part of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. I am part of the Science Automation Technologies group led by Dr Ewa Deelman where I am working on scientific workflows management on large-scale cyber-infrastructures and, I am also working on optimizing machine learning workflows to run on high-performance systems (HPC).

I have defended my PhD in Computer Science at École Normale Supérieure (ENS Lyon), France, in 2018, under the supervision of Anne Benoit and Yves Robert. I was part of the team ROMA at the LIP. I was mainly working on co-scheduling algorithms for large-scale applications. I was also working on scheduling and data management problems on the new many-core architectures.
