I am an Associate Professor and Boeing Centennial Chair in Computer Science at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Washington State University in Pullman. I am also a graduate faculty in the Molecular Plant Sciences Graduate Program and a participating faculty in the Center for Integrated Biotechnology at WSU. I received my bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering from Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (formerly a Regional Engineering College) in Nagpur, India; and M.S. (Computer Science, 2002) and Ph.D. (Computer Engineering, 2006) from Iowa State University. My research interests include computational biology & bioinformatics, parallel algorithms and applications, and string algorithms, with an overall emphasis on the development and dissemination of high-performance computing solutions for data-intensive problems in computational genomics and proteomics. I am a recipient of the Department of Energy Early Career Research award, and best paper awards at IPDPS and CSB. I am member of ACM, IEEE, IEEE-CS, ISCB and SIAM.
