Computers are often surprisingly powerful. Each one can calculate faster than all of the people on Earth put together! However, exploiting this power is an ordeal for programmers due to the complexity of modern computers.

I get the components of a computer to collaborate.

Computers are made up of numerous independent components that are specialised to varying degrees, organised in a hierarchical manner and have to collaborate - just like the employees in a company. Dividing the work among these electronic employees and getting them to communicate effectively is a difficult problem that constitutes an enormous factor in the overall efficiency of a machine. Together with his team, Brice Goglin devises software to facilitate the operation of these complex machines in the field of scientific computation and digital simulation, for example to address difficult problems such as weather forecasts.
