Dimitar Lukarski

Welcome to my homepage!


About me
I work on interdisciplinary topics in the area of parallel numerical methods and emerging hardware such as GPUs and multi-core CPUs. My research focus is mainly on robust and fine-grained parallel sparse solvers and preconditioners.

Currently, I am working on a sparse linear algebra library, specially designed to explore fine-grained level of parallelism (multi-core CPUs, GPUs, etc).
