I am an assistant professor at the Department of Computer science at UIC. My research lies at the intersection of high-performance computing (HPC) and Data visualization. More broadly, I work on problems in parallel I/O, big data processing, scalable algorithms, scientific visualiaztion, GPUs & performance modeling. I completed my Ph.D. in Computing at the SCI Institute at the University of Utah, advised by Valerio Pascucci.
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.
