I’m an Assistant Professor at the University of South Florida in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. I received my PhD from the Computer Science Department of Purdue University where my dissertation was about Camera Model Design, a problem solving paradigm which advocates designing dynamic, application specific camera models for solving problems in computer graphics, visualization, and computer vision. While at Purdue, I was also a key participant of the team which modeled, simulated, and visualized the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center North Tower. The press release from the simulation resulted the most widely covered in Purdue University history, with the associated video appearing on many news and educational television programs. The video has been viewed almost 15 million times on YouTube. After Purdue, I joined the University of Utah as a Research Assistant Professor in the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute and the School of Computing. My recent research interests include topics in Scientific Visualization, such as vector field and uncertainty visualization, and Information Visualization, such as parameter space and software performance visualization. Along with my collaborators, I have received awards for best paper at PacificVis 2016, IVAPP 2016, PacificVis 2014, and SIBGRAPI 2013 and honorable mentions at the VAST Challenge 2017 and CG&A 2011 best paper.
