Sayan Goswami

Assistant Professor of Computer Science

Louisiana State University, Shreveport


I am an assistant professor in the department of Computer Science at LSU Shreveport. My research interests lie primarily in the big-data domain of de novo whole genome assembly and in general I am intested in the high-performance computing (HPC) aspect of handling scientific datasets. I am especially interested in desiging scalable memory-efficient tools for processing large datasets by sketching, streaming or partitioning them.

Lately, I am quite keen on third generation sequence assembly (also known as long read assembly) partly because of the computational complexity involved in it but mostly since low-cost portable 3G sequencers such as Oxford Nanopore MinION can make personalized medicine, and on-field analysis, such as monitoring pathogens or environmental samples, much more affordable.
