Arpan Jain is a Ph.D. student at The Ohio State University working with Prof. DK Panda. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Information and Communication Technology from ABV - Indian Institute of Information Technology and Mangement Gwalior (ABV-IIITM Gwalior), India. Currently, he is working as a Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) at the Network-Based Computing Laboratory (NOWLAB). His current research interests lie at the intersection of Deep Learning (DL) and High-Performance Computing(HPC). He is working on parallelization and distribution strategies for large-scale Deep Neural Network (DNN) training. He previously worked on speech analysis, time series modeling, hyperparameter optimization using nature-inspired algorithms for DNN, and object recognition. He has published 9 papers in conferences and journals related to these areas. He actively contributes to projects like HiDL (High-Performance Deep Learning) and MVAPICH2-GDR (High-Performance MPI for GPU clusters).
