About Me

  • Hometown: New Delhi, India
  • Field of Study: Information Visualization and Visual Analytics
  • PhD Advisor: Michelle Borkin

What are the specifics of your graduate education (thus far)?

I completed my Bachelor’s of Technology in Computer Science from Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology University, India. During my undergraduate degree, I worked on a wide array of problems from the field of databases and web development, which helped me in narrowing down my research areas which are information visualization and visual analytics.

What are your research interests?

My current research interests have grown from a database and web development background, where I did a lot of work at an academic and professional level and then ventured into the super interesting field of information visualization. Currently, my research interests lie in developing novel Visualization tools and methods, with a special focus on understanding large multidimensional data sets. I am also interested in data science and I like to analyze the data I have to visualize it as it gives me the power to understand and connect with the data at a deeper level.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

I would like to incorporate principles of computer science, data science, design and psychology into my research for solving big data visualization problems.

What aspect of what you do is most interesting?

Information visualization offers amazing opportunities to work in a collaborative research environment and thus opens up multiple avenues to publish your research. It is a unique and rare field which synthesizes art and science to produce interesting visualizations which have amazing informative and artistic value.

What are your research or career goals, going forward?

I would like to work in a research lab with close academic collaborators. I intend to carry out independent research and simultaneously propagate my research to the world.

Where did you grow up or spend your most defining years?

I spent most of my childhood in New Delhi, India. I completed college from Bhubaneswar, Odisha which gave me an opportunity to interact and mingle with different people from all the amazing community and cultures of India.
