I am a Staff Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Computational Research Division) and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of EECS (CS Division) at UC Berkeley. I work on high-performance graph analysis and libraries, parallel sparse matrix computations, communication-avoiding algorithms, with applications in machine learning and computational genomics.

I am part of the Performance and Algorithms group as well as the Computational Biosciences group at LBNL. 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).


Up-to-date information about current projects, students, and postdocs can be found in my research team's website: PASSION Lab.

Teaching:

-- In Spring 2019, I team taught CS267: Applications of Parallel Computers with Jim Demmel and Kathy Yelick.

-- In Spring 2020, Jim Demmel and I will teach CS267 again. If you're an undergrad that is interested in the class and want to get on the approval list, go to the Spring 2019 website and fill the form linked from the top of the page.
