About Me

I'm a third year PhD. student at ENS Lyon, working with Dr. Bora Ucar and Prof. Yves Robert in ROMA group within LIP. My main area of research is combinatorial scientific computing (CSC). I am interested in problems with combinatorial and HPC aspect arising in (multi)linear algebra, scientific computing, and machine learning. I focus on developing fast algorithms, modeling/analyzing their complexity, and providing very efficient (parallel) implementations to run on modern HPC architectures for key computational methods in these areas. Specifically, in my thesis I concentrate on high performance parallel tensor computations. I consider myself to be a computer scientist as well as a software engineer.

Before arriving at ENS Lyon, I completed my masters studies on computational science and engineering at Georgia Tech. During these years, I had the chance to do two awesome internships as a software engineer in cuSPARSE team of NVIDIA in Santa Clara, CA, and Philantropy team of Palantir in Palo Alto, CA.
