Biography

I am a Senior Research Scientist at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I received the D.Sc. degree from the University of Antwerp (UIA), Belgium, in 1997 and the Specialist degree from the Vynnychenko State Pedagogical University (KDPU), Kirovograd, Ukraine, in 1993. Prior to becoming a Research Scientist, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at NCSA.

Academic Positions

  • Visiting Lecturer, ECE, UIUC, 2009-2013
  • Senior Research Scientist, NCSA, UIUC, 2004-present
