I am a computer scientist at the Center for Computing Research at Sandia National Laboratories. I have been in Sandia since 2010.
Ph.D. CISE, University of Florida, 2009. Advisor: Prof. Tim Davis
My primary focus is on High Performance Computing. Within this broad field I focus on
- Linear solvers: Sparse factorizations and preconditioners such as communication-avoiding preconditioners, hybrid (direct + iterative) preconditioners and direct solvers
- Combinatorial algorithms for scientific computing problems: Graph/Hypergraph algorithms for partitioning, sparse matrix ordering and matching problems
- Graph algorithms for analytics: Graph traversals, finding connected components, graph analysis and partitioning of small-world graphs
- Applications : Integrating the above methods in applications of importance
