About me

I work in two main areas. One is Combinatorial Scientific Computing and Numerical Linear Algebra. My work in this area spans sparse matrix computations, combinatorial preconditioners, and communication efficient algorithms (and lower bounds for them).

The other is computer systems; my main current focus in this area is wildlife localization and tracking. I have been leading the technical development of the ATLAS reverse-GPS wildlife tracking system since 2012. ATLAS tracking is being used to produce breakthrough results in Ecology, like the breakthrough reported on in our recent Science paper.Before that, I worked on wireless sensors and on algorithms and data structures for flash memories.

Websites and Projects

I maintain (or have maintained) several projects, websites and blogs. Some of them are not longer active, but still contain useful information and/or software.
