Research title: Carbon-Aware Execution of Scientific Workflows on Heterogeneous Clusters

Research Summary

I am interested in reducing the carbon footprint of scientific workflow execution on heterogeneous clusters through the application of carbon-aware computing techniques like workload shifting and resource scaling - aiming to make use of estimated resource demands and runtimes from efficient profiling of scientific workflow tasks.
