I received Ph.D. in Computer Science from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore under the supervision of Prof. Vijay Natarajan in 2018. The title of my Ph.D. thesis was “Geometric and Topological Methods for Biomolecular Visualization”. Before that, I completed Masters in Computer Science and Engineering from the same institute, with my thesis project focussing on extraction of symmetric structures in scalar fields. Since Nov. 2018, I have been part of the SciVis group at Norrköping as a post-doctoral fellow.
Goal and Research interests
My goal is to pursue interdisciplinary research using my skills as a computer scientist to solve problems from different scientific domains. I want to contribute in a tangible way towards devising solutions to major challenges faced by humanity today and in the future. My primary research interest is in the area of data analysis and visualization. Specifically, I am interested in using techniques from the field of scientific visualization, computational topology and computational geometry to solve data analysis problems in varied application domains like climate science, medical science, structural biology and material science. I am also interested in designing and implementing parallel algorithms to handle large datasets more efficiently.
