I am a Research 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 neuroscience. Previously, I was an Alvarez Fellow.

I obtained my Ph.D. from UC Santa Barbara in Computer Science. My advisor was John R. Gilbert. 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).

Travel (Winter 2015/16): Meet me at SC'15 or PAG 2016.
