About Me

I am Saheli Ghosh. I am currently pursuing my PhD at University of California, Riverside under the supervision of Prof. Ahmed Eldawy. I originally come from the beautiful "city of joy" Kolkata, India. Before joining UCR, I completed my Mtech, in India and worked closely with Prof. Amlan Chakrabarti from University of Calcutta, for my Master's thesis. I have been studying computer science for a little over 10 years now since my undergrads. During this time I ventured into various spheres of computer science before I finally found my love for data.

Current Research

I work on visualization of big spatial data. The research is presently concentrated on interactive multilevel visualization. It focuses on providing extensibility, scalability, efficiency and giga-pixel resolution images of spatial data. I work on both Hadoop and Spark depending on the extensibility, usability and agility of these systems in dealing with spatial operations.Though I mainly use Java, I am also slowly switching to Scala, especially while working in Spark framework.
