San Diego Supercomputer Center, UCSD
Amit Chourasia is a Sr. Visualization Scientist at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, UC San Diego where he leads the Visualization Group. His work is focused on leading the research, development and application of software tools and techniques for visualization. Key area of his work is to develop methods to represent data in a visual form that is clear, succinct and accurate (a challenging yet very exciting endeavor). He has had an opportunity to work with research groups in diverse science and engineering disciplines and contends that with the help of visualization, domain and data scientists can visually validate and investigate their data, explore and gain significant insights as well as share results within and outside their community.

Computing is ephemeral, but data wills to persist: Result and data sharing are also a forefront of his interests, to this end he has developed a modular web based cloud infrastructure to enable this important and at times critical gap in scientific process via the SeedMe2 project.
