About me

As an undergraduate at DAIICT, I was fascinated by computer graphics, ultimately leading me to join The University of Utah. While at the U, I spent a summer at Argonne National Lab, where I was exposed to the world of supercomputing. I was thrilled by the idea of using supercomputers to solve computationally massive problems. Ever since, I have worked at the intersection of HPC, analytics and visualization, helping domain scientists extract knowledge from massive amounts of complex data.

I am an Assistant Professor in Department of Computer Science at University of Illinois, Chicago. I was previously an assistant professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I received my B.Tech. in Information and communication technology from DAIICT, India and my Ph.D. in Computing from the University of Utah.

I am working on problems at the intersection of High performance computing and large-scale data management. More specefically, I am interested in large data processing, scientific visualization, scalable algorithms, large data file formats, interactive techniques, for data analysis and high performance computing.
