Gowtham I serve as the Director of Research Computing (in Information Technology), an Adjunct Assistant Professor (in Physics and Electrical and Computer Engineering) at Michigan Tech, and represent the university in HPC Advisory Council and NSF XSEDE Campus Champion Program -- developing collaborations and partnerships with industry and other academic institutions to discover internship, job and funding opportunities for researchers.

The ever evolving job description involves
  1. 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,
  2. training researchers to effectively utilize aforementioned resources and finding additional ones, when necessary, through XSEDE,
  3. developing and teaching hands-on courses and programs in computational sciences and engineering,
  4. pursuing research in inter-disciplinary fields,
  5. serving on advisory committees for graduate students, and executive committees to improve existing and introduce newer academic programs.


A brief history of mine


A 2007 Engineering Physics grad from Michigan Tech, I spent some time working as an application developer for a telecom company. I returned home in 2009 -- as a post-doctoral fellow in Physics.

Gowtham Collecting and reading books, sports, photography, exploring Upper Michigan's wilderness and toying around with computers -- designing and writing software/code to meet various personal needs, etc. -- keep me busy during free times. I adore and idolize Vishweshwaraiah, Vince Lombardi, my teachers, and few scientists.

As much of what I [don't] do or why I [don't] do 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 -- LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook Instagram, GitHub, Garmin, -- and I will make it worth your time.
