About me

I’m Pamela Delgado.

I’m an Assistant Professor at the University of Applied Sciences of Valais in Switzerland (HES-SO Valais-Wallis) and I’m also a lecturer at EPFL.

Before joining HES-SO Valais-Wallis, I worked as a senior computer scientist at the Swiss Data Science Center as a part of the Renku team.

I received my PhD in Computer Science from EPFL Switzerland in 2018. My PhD thesis focused on providing better scheduling and large-scale resource management solutions for data centers.

My research interests include big data, reproducibility, data center scheduling, cloud computing, distributed computing and systems support for data science. 

My research was supported by Microsoft Research and made part of a project of the Swiss Joint Research Center at Microsoft. I am also recipient of the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship on 2013 and the Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship for Foreign Students.
