Rosa Filgueira

Abstract: Since October 2016, Rosa Filgueira has been working at the British Geological Survey (BGS) as a Senior Data Scientist. She is involved in a variety of national and international research projects where she applies different technologies from Data Science and High Performance Computing to extract data-driven insights from different domain areas. During her visit at ISI, she has mainly worked in two complementary subjects. The first consists in building a new data-streaming infrastructure to collect and perform data analytics in real-time. The proposed infrastructure can be used for analysing real-time workflows performance and/or for monitoring real-time sensor/instrument data (e.g. geo-energy data).  The second topic consists to create a new semantic catalog for describing geosciences resources. 

Bio: Rosa Filgueira, Phd, is a Senior Data Scientist of the British Geological Survey (BGS). Previously, she was working as Senior Research Associate at the Data Intensive Research Group of the University Edinburgh at the School of Informatics. Currently, she is performing a research visit at University of 

Southern California (USC), in the Information Sciences Institute (ISI), funded by the PECE SISCA award. Her research expertise is on improving the HPC applications’ scalability and performance by using scientific workflows, science gateways and parallel programming models, having contributed to several European and national projects in hazard forecasting and parallel processing and produced over 30 publications.
