About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, University of South Florida (USF). I joined USF in 2015 and received my M. S. degree in Computer Science in 2017. Back further received my Bachelor’s in Computer Engineering from the University of Mumbai (2012). I worked as a System Engineer in Infosys Limited, Pune.

Dr. Paul Rosen advises me at the Graphics and Visualization Lab (GVL @USF). My research interests are in the area of Information visualization, Perceptual visualization, and Human-Computer Interaction. I am investigating constructing frameworks for task-optimized visualizations, focusing on clustering in the scatterplot and smoothing on line charts.
