CA Technologies Scholarship Recipient

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the High Performance Computing and Tools (HPCTools) research group at the University of Houston, Texas, USA. My current area of work spans designing portable programmable solutions for HPC, accelerators, heterogeneous and multicore embedded technologies. My research interests include parallel programming, reconfigurable computing, accelerators, and providing runtime support as part of a software framework. My research contributions include designing and delivering portable productive solutions for multicore embedded systems, creating and delivering evaluation frameworks for parallel programming models, exploring algorithms of interest to Oil and Gas industries. Am a member of the Multicore Association (MCA), OpenMP and OpenACC.

I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, in the area of developing tools and algorithms to ease programming on FPGAs. I earned my B.E in Electrical & Electronics from Anna University, India.

“Science is not magic, it requires a lot of hard work, understanding, will power and creativity. Today’s students are our future scientists. I would like to teach, mentor and coach students and create computing opportunities for budding scientists.”
