I am an assistant professor in the School of EECS at Pennsylvania State University. My research interests include high-performance computing, parallel graph algorithms, and massive scientific data analysis.
Prior to joining Penn State in Fall 2011, I was at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for three years, first as a Luis W. Alvarez postdoctoral fellow, and then as a research scientist. I received my PhD in 2008 from the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology, and my undergraduate degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras.
Most of our research group members currently work on one of two active NSF projects, on scalable parallel graph computations or accelerating genomic workflows. Check out our recent publications and software tools (SPRITE, FASCIA) developed through these projects.Updates
- We will be presenting at IPDPS 2016, ISC-HPC 2016, and SIAM AN16 this summer.
- I'm serving on the program committees of HiPC 2016 (back in Hyderabad this year; submission deadline: June 15) and the Supercomputing 2016 doctoral showcase event (deadline: July 31). Consider submitting your work here!
- Congrats to our latest lab graduates: George, Ramachandran, and Sindhuja!
- I will be teaching CMPSC 465 (Data Structures and Algorithms) in Fall 2016.
- If you want to join my research group, please apply to the CSE PhD program or the Bioinformatics and Genomics PhD program, and contact me after submitting your application. I'm looking for motivated PhD students interested in working on the parallel graph computations project and/or the genomic workflows project.
