Opportunity in Parallelism

Beginning this week I will be working for a period of 3 months with the people of the Research in Spatial Economics group (RiSE) at Universidad EAFIT. They developed a library of spatially constrained clustering algorithms named ClusterPy. I will be helping them in making some optimizations and basically, in changing a few things to make the library able to run on clusters and reduce running times.

At the moment I will start looking at the following algorithms:

This work has a huge impact since the library is currently being used by many people and the algorithms have already started many discussions in the topic. I hope I can make a good contribution to the project.
