A brief history of mine
After earning an Engineering Physics
I spent some time working as an application developer for
in its R&D head quarters in Middletown, New Jersey.
in 2009 -- as a post-doctoral fellow in Physics.
I adore and idolize
my teachers, and few scientists.
Collecting and reading books, sports, photography, exploring Upper
Michigan's wilderness and toying around with computers -- designing
and writing software applications to meet various personal needs, etc. --
keep me busy during free times.
Since the Summer of 2013 and most
certainly since that of 2014, much of free time has been invested
in aspirations of being a
and a triathlete -- thanks in great part to my dear
friends in and outside of my community for the often unexpected,
undeserved, unrewarded acts of constant encouragement, and
offerings of constructive criticism, tested tips and tricks.
As much of what I (don't) do or why I (don't) do them appears to make
little or no sense, I might be perceived as a very boring,
obsessive and socially unacceptable entity, at times very arrogant
and insensitive as well. If you still decide to hang out, contact
me in person or stalk one or more of my social identities --
-- and I will make it worth your time.
A summary of work
Since January 2011, I have been serving as the Director of Research Computing (in
an Adjunct Assistant Professor (in
Electrical and Computer Engineering
with teaching and research responsibilities
at Michigan Tech.
The ever evolving job description involves
- designing and supporting just about every aspect of
research computing and visualization -- from desktops to
high-performance computing (HPC) and high-performance
visualization (HPV) clusters,
- training researchers to utilize
aforementioned resources and finding additional ones, when
- developing and teaching hands-on courses and programs
in computational sciences and engineering,
- pursuing research in inter-disciplinary fields,
- serving on advisory committees for graduate students, and
executive committees to improve existing and introduce
newer academic programs.
I represent Michigan Tech in

HPC Advisory Council
NSF XSEDE Campus Champion Program
-- developing collaborations and partnerships with industry and
other academic institutions to discover internship, job and
funding opportunities for students and researchers.
