About me

I am a Computer Scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Previously, I held a possition in the Vanderbilt University as a research asssistant professor and I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign while holding a research assistanship with the National Center for Supercomputing Applications funded by the Blue Waters project.

My research interests are in the broad area of performance optimization and resiliency for High Performance Computing systems and applications. My research focuses on designing new runtime systems (including scheduling policies, I/O middleware, fault tolerance mechanisms and resource sharing policies) as well as analyzing and optimizing algorithms.

More recent, I have started working on computational data science in HPC, with a special focus on irregular applications. I am interested in understanding the computational and I/O needs of emerging new fields that do not follow the traditional HPC/Cloud models (like neuroscience and bioinformatics). Data-intensive computing and the HPC/Big-Data/Machine Learning convergence are also topics of interest.

Feel free to check out my work and if you have any questions, or would like to work together, don't hesitate to contact me.
