About Me

I am a third year PhD student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley. My advisors are Prof. Ole J. Mengshoel and Prof. Ted Selker.
I got my Bachelors in Information Technology (B.Tech) with Distinction from Mohamed Sathak AJ College of Engineering, Anna University. I worked in Infosys Technologies Ltd as a software engineer for three years.


Reserach Interests

My research focuses on inventing intelligent visualizations for exploring large or complex data. This involves investigating novel interaction techniques for guiding the data visualization and discovery process and helping users in the decision making process by integrating machine learning algorithms.

I have developed a multi-fisheye technique which allows the user to simultaneously zoom in on 10-20 network nodes and their immediate neighborhood while retaining the context of the entire network. The multi-fisheye technique is based on partitioning the visualization’s display area and applying a fisheye distortion inside each partition. All the focus areas are independently zoomed and additional data related to the focus nodes can be further explored. I have explored the potential of the multi-fisheye technique for fault diagnosis using large Bayesian networks.
