|A bit about me|
First of all, welcome to my webpage.
My name is Oded Green and I recently finished my PhD in Computational Science and Engineering(CSE). I receieved a M.Sc in Electirical Engineering in 2010 and a B.Sc in Computer Engineering in 2008.
My interests include (but not limited to ) parallel architectures, data structures for parallel applications, large scale graph problems, social network analysis, scheduling, and load-balancing.
A lot of my work has focused on algorithm design - parallel merging, dynamic betweenness centrality, efficient clustering coefficient computation, estimated covariance computation for image processing. I am strong believer of "when theory meets practice". This means that I believe in implementation and performance analysis. In fact my favorite stage of research is the performance analysis stage as this typically allows diving deeper into the problem and getting a better understanding of the problem at hand.
As a graduate student I had several great oppurtunities to work with both undergraduate students and junior graduate students. This was a great experience and I highly encourage graduate students to partake in this. It truly is a great way to learn: leadership skills, how to run a small team, how to motivate people, how to conduct research, time management, and so much more. On a professional level, this is a great way to colloborate. On a personal level, this is a great way to make friends for life.
A few my hobbies are squash, kung-fu, scuba diving, hiking and backpacking.
