  • Background:

        SHAJULIN BENEDICT graduated in 2001 from Manonmaniam Sunderanar University, India, with Distinction. In 2004, he received M.E Degree in Digital Communication and Computer Networking from A.K.C.E, Anna University, Chennai. He is the University second rank holder for his masters. He did his Ph.D degree in the area of Grid scheduling under Anna University, Chennai (Supervisor - Dr. V. Vasudevan, Director, Software Technologies Group of TIFAC Core in Network Engineering). He was affiliated towards the same group and published more papers in Int. Journals. After his Ph.D award, he joined a research team in Germany to pursue PostDoctorate under the guidance of Prof. Gerndt. Currently, he is a Professor at SXCCE Research Centre of Anna University-Chennai and he is heading the HPCCLoud Research Laboratory which was established by him at his workplace. He is also a Visiting Professor of TUM, Germany. His research interests include Grid scheduling, Performance Analysis of parallel applications (including exa-scale), Cloud Computing, and so forth.
