I am a third year PhD candidate at University of Oregon(UofO), working in the High Performance Computing Laboratory (HPCL),
under the supervision of Prof. Boyana Norris.
Prior to this I received my Bachelor's degree in Mody Institute of Technology and Science, Rajasthan. Soon after I joined IBM and worked
for a year as Associate Systems Engineer and as a Systems Engineer there on. Next, I came to US for pursuing my Masters in Computer
Science from University of Oregon.
My resume is available here to view.

- Fall 2014 - Present - Research Assistant, High Performance Computing Lab (HPCL), under the supervision of Professor Boyana Norris
Presently, I am working on the Lighthouse project which involves working on large datasets, preprocessing the data, analyzing the data, creating a workflow and building performance models. Currently I am applying this approach to the Portable Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computing (PETSc, a widely used high-performance solver package) to automate the process of selecting the parallel numerical solvers that would perform best in solving a given large sparse linear system. My work involves dealing with problems coming from different domains such as computational fluid dynamics, model reduction, electromagnetics, semiconductor devices, thermodynamics, materials, acoustics and many more. This project is useful to scientists from all these domains, and can apply to even more domains. This work has made me interested in data analytics and other related tasks.
