About Me

I will be joining the Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University as an Assistant Professor starting Fall 2017. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University, where I was advised by Prof. Ronald Fedkiw. During graduate school, I also worked as a consultant in the Spatial Technologies team at the Nokia Research Center. Prior to joining Stanford, I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur with a B. Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering. As an undergraduate, I also spent two wonderful summers as a research intern in the GEOMETRICA team at INRIA Sophia Antipolis.

I am interested in the areas of computer graphics, scientific and high-performance computing, computational physics, robotics, biomechanics, computational geometry and their applications in the physical sciences and engineering. Some of my recent work has focused on pushing the limits of current numerical algorithms for capturing small scale details in solid and fluid simulations by leveraging accelerations both at the algorithmic and systems level. More broadly, I am interested in the design of next generation algorithms that can facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration with researchers in engineering and medicine for understanding phenomena that are intractable by current means. Outside of work, I enjoy running, rock climbing, hiking, watching movies, and playing piano.

I am always happy to work with motivated graduate/undergraduate students. If you are a student at Rutgers and are interested in joining my group, please drop me an email. If you are a student outside, I encourage you to apply to the Ph.D. program in Computer Science at Rutgers University, and mention my name in your application. I also have an opening for a postdoctoral scholar in my group. If you are interested, please email me directly with your CV.
