About Me
I am a graduate student currently pursuing Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. I am presently working in the Visualization Lab as a research assistant under Dr. Bijaya B. Karki.
I study scientific and information visualization; computer graphics and image processing also interests me. In my  free time, I enjoy playing soccer and kayaking on the bayou.
Please find my Resume here.

My current project involves the development of visualization application (AtomViz) to address the rendering and analysis needs of molecular dynamics data generated from First Principles simulations. I focus on the study and implementation of tools for dynamical and structural analysis of atomic system in AtomViz, an in-house project here in Louisiana State University. Figures below show a screen shot of atomic system rendered in AtomViz for the detailed visualization-based analysis of atomic position-time series data.
























In my previous project, I contributed in the  visualization of pathlines and time-surfaces in large, curvilinear, multi-block data sets of fluid dynamics using the visualization framework Vish. A key challenge is the ability to easily mine the time dependent computational fluid dynamics data; extract key features of the flow field; display these spatially evolving features in the space-time domain of interest. The implementation of time surfaces, such as an evolving surface of a sphere (shown below in figures), for analyzing the flow field is more relevant in context of a stirred tank system.

Visualizing a model basalt melt at 2200K (left), and 3000K (right). The Si/Al-O polyhedra and Ca/Mg-O spheres encode the respective coordination environment information with respect to oxygen. Also rendered are the trajectories (time encoded from green to red) of Ca and Mg atoms.


Evolution of two spheres at time slices 0, 50, 100, 125 and 150, respectively from left-top to bottom, as seen top-view of the stirred tank. First image shows the seed spheres, and the last image shows two spheres just before the surfaces are about to mix. The integration of surfaces over time generates and evolving surface that can illustrate key flow characteristics such as how matter injected in a stirred tank disperses, and in what regions of the tank is the turbulence high.
