Venkat is a web developer at the HCI lab working with Dr. Carl Gutwin for the plant phenotyping project at P2IRC. His work is centered around building a suite of visualization tools and web interfaces for exploring genomic datasets and he works in collaboration with a diverse team of bioinformaticians, genome researchers and biologists.
Venkat completed his MSc in Computer Science in 2020 at the University of Saskatchewan under the supervision of Dr. Carl Gutwin. His research work during his masters led to the development of SynVisio an interactive visualization tool designed for exploring genomic conservation, that is currently being used by several researchers across the world.
