I am a Software Engineer at Advance Photon Source division of Argonne National Laboratory. My current work involves building parallel analysis software for X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy using MapReduce framework of Hadoop.
I got my Masters in Computer Science from Computer Sciences department at University of Wisconsin-Madison. I was advised by Prof. Bilge Mutlu of Human-Computer Interaction lab. My work was on human-robot interaction. I mainly focused on building computational understanding of human social behaviors in face-to-face communications and applying that understanding to build effective socially interactive interfaces such as robots.

In past, I worked with the Condor Project. I implemented support for the execution and management of Hadoop's MapReduce framework under Condor's Parallel Universe. This work enabled the successful completion of the assembly of whole human genome data.
Joined Argonne National Lab as a Software Engineer.
Our paper "How do humans teach: On curriculum learning and teaching dimension" got accepted for NIPS'11. It compares computational learning theory with the actual human teaching behaviors.
