CERN Accelerating science

Nawel Medjkoune

Nawel will soon defend a dual-degree (Engineering and Master) from the National Higher School of Computer Science in Algeria. Her master's topic is about hyper-heurstics, which are heuristic search methods in operation research that incorporate machine learning techniques. Currently, she's working in Université de Technologie de Compiègne in France as a research intern. Her internship is about elaborating new search algorithms to solve scheduling problems, incorporating hyper-heuristic methods. Her areas of interest are Operation Research, Machine Learning, Data Analysis and how to make these three work together to solve challenging problems. During her CERN internship, Nawel will work on the integration of containers into the CERN Batch farm using the HTCondor docker universe.
