I was a teaching assistant for an algorithm design course at CMU taught by my advisor. I review for a number of venues including ISMB, WABI, Bioinformatics, NAR, and Physica A. I have taken a total of 11 courses for my Ph.D covering the areas of algorithms, databases, high-performance computing, human-computer interaction, and lab methods for computational biology. Before becoming a Ph.D. student, I worked at the Department of Defense for four years. As an undergraduate, I had the privilege of being advised by Fabian Bustamante and Peter Dinda. Even earlier, I interned at Cerner.
I love to play with new gadgets and experiment occasionally with newer programming languages (e.g. Rust, Scala, Nim(rod), Swift) and contributions to open source developer tools (e.g. a package for Atom editor). I also really enjoy swimming, hiking, running, traveling.
One of the photos I took was invited to Communications of the ACM, "Reading the CS Classics". Other photos can be viewed on Google+and older ones on Flickr.
Some of my current notes are here: Github.io Notes. I used to post an occasional article here and more frequent, lightweight thoughts and photos on my public Google+ stream (#Sci, #Tech). I like all sorts of music and Radiohead and the Beatles are probably my favorite bands. I also really like electronic music by Overwerk, Deadmau5, Kraftwerk, etc. Here's a playlist of some songs as an example.
I am a Sikh. I aim primarily to surrender my ego, seek the truth in all things, live a life of compassion and humility, and have the courage to fight if necessary. Sikhs strengthen and remind themselves to live in this way through meditation and music. Our scripture, Guru Granth Sahib Ji, is our everlasting Guru and is treated with utmost respect. It is poetry divided by classical Indian music scales, and its words come from saints from many different backgrounds and spiritual traditions. It was created, compiled, and sealed by the original Gurus.
