Hi there! And welcome to my website!

My name is Emilio José Padrón González (Ourense, 1975) and I am teaching and researching at Universidade da Coruña (UDC) as a member of the Computer Architecture Group (GAC) and the research center CITIC. My main topics of interest are in the fields of High Performance Computing (HPC), Computer Graphics, Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence.

At present, I’m mainly focus on these two research lines:

  • High performance data analytics (HPDA and Big Data), applied to scientific data from numerical simulations to get an online analysis of these data (in-situ and/or in-transit) at scale.

  • The triangle Computer Graphics - Computer Vision - Artificial Intelligence: particularly, AI (ML/DL/DRL) applied to computer graphics, computer vision and multimedia.


  • High Peformance Computing
  • Computer Graphics
  • Data Analytics
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Free/Libre and Open-Source Software (FLOSS)
