Ph.D. in Computing (Graphics and Visualization) @ SCI Institute, The University of Utah, USA

I completed my Ph.D. at the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute, the University of Utah. I worked under the guidance of Prof. Valerio Pascucci at the SCI Institute, and Dr. Peer-Timo Bremer, at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). My Ph.D. research focused on the analysis of vector fields. In particular, I developed new representations and theories to perform consistent feature extraction from vector field data.

Dissertation Title:

In Fall 2008, I joined SCI as a student for the M.S. in the Computational Engineering and Science (CES) program. CES is an interdisciplinary program that gave me the flexibility to study the entire simulation pipeline ranging from modeling a real world problem, to solving it and then visualizing it. Inspired and intrigued by the various fields I got to explore during my M.S., in Spring 2011, I converted to the Ph.D. in Computing program with a focus in Graphics and Visualization. In January 2012, I was awarded the Lawrence Graduate Scholarship which funded my graduate research. I successfully defended my thesis on October 30, 2014.

B.Tech. in Information & Communication Technology @ DA-IICT, India

Before joining the University of Utah, I completed my Bachelors in Information & Communication Technology from Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology (DA-IICT), Gandhinagar, India. There, I was involved with the MAGNeT group in understanding the dynamics of ad-hoc networks.
