I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science and Engineering department 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 a poster on SPRITE at ASHG 2015.
- I'm co-organizing the BigGraphs workshop again this year. It will be a half-day event at the 2015 IEEE International Conference on Big Data, to be held in Santa Clara, CA.
- I'm on the program committee of IPDPS 2016 and the Graph Algorithms Building Blocks (GABB) workshop. Consider submitting your best work there!
- I'm looking forward to Supercomputing 2015.
- If you are interested in joining my research group, please apply to the CSE PhD program or the BG option in the MCIBS PhD program.
- My office hours for the Fall 2015 semester are TR 1-2.30 pm.
