Maybe somebody could try to use openmp in all of the SVGFilters
but I think that this would be too simple for your master thesis.
Indeed, it would be much better if somebody ported the filtering code
to cairo, and then used it in inkscape. This would be a bit harder
since it would be necessary to define a cairo API for filter effects.
I think that could be worthwhile.
But if you wish to work on inkscape related stuff in your master
thesis, then I think that it should be something really hard. The
first thing that I can think about is the process of porting the
SPObject and all of its derived classes to C++
That would certainly be hard, but not interesting material for a thesis.
Also, another thing that is possibly hard enough for your thesis is
implementing threading in Inkscape.
This might be more interesting, but I'm still not sure it would be good
