I am a staff scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, working on high-performance graph analysis and libraries, parallel sparse matrix computations, communication-avoiding algorithms, with applications in computational genomics and biology. I am also an adjunct assistant professor of EECS at UC Berkeley. Previously, I was an Alvarez Fellow.

I obtained my Ph.D. from UC Santa Barbara in Computer Science. My unusually shallow genealogy includes only three lineal ascendants. You can pronounce my first name like this. The "ı" in my first name is a lowercase dotless i ({\i} in LaTeX, ı in HTML and U+0131 in UTF-8).

Current Projects: EDGAR, ExaBiome, BINOCULARS, and THOR.
