Mohamed Ben Belgacem

About me:
I am currently a Post-Doc in computer science at the University of Geneva. I received my Ph.D from the University of Geneva. My thesis is concerned with the large scale distributed system and computational fluid dynamics. I received my master degree and engineering degree in computer science from National School of Computer Sciences (Tunisia). I currently work at the University of Geneva as a Post-Doc research assistant.
