Maryam Mehri Dehnavi

Assistant Professor

Rutgers University

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rutgers university. Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Supertech Research Group, working on autotuning divide-and-conquer algorithms with Prof. Charles Leiserson.

Background: I completed my Ph.D. in Computational Electromagnetics from McGill University in 2012 in the Computational Electromagnetics Laboratory advised by Prof. Dennis Giannacopoulos. During my Ph.D. I have also worked as a visiting researcher in the The Parallel Computing Laboratory advised by Prof. James Demmel and in the Parallel Systems & Computer Architecture Lab advised by Prof. Jean-Luc Gaudiot.

Research: My research interests include High-Performance Computing, Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Numerical Analysis, Domain-Specific Compilers, Parallel Programming Models, Computational Biology, and General-Purpose Computing.
