My name is Harish Doraiswamy, and welcome to my virtual world. I am currently a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research India. I was previously a Research Scientist at the NYU Center for Data Science, and a Research Assistant Professor in  Computer Science and Engineering at NYU's Tandon School of Engineering.

I received both, my Ph.D. and Master of Engg., in Computer Science and Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Automation at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

This is a temporary website in lieu of the one I am waiting for Slartibartfast to finish.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the areas of visualization, topology-based techniques, computer graphics, database systems, and parallel / gpu algorithms. My various projects have spanned the various stages in the data science pipeline including: data management, data analytics (primarily topological data analysis), visualization, and visual analytics.The focus of my recent research has been on managing and understanding very large spatial data sets from cities.
