Bhaskar DasGupta is currently an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and also affiliated with the Bioengineering Department at UIC. He did his Ph.D. degree from University of Minnesota in 1995, and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at DIMACS and jointly at University of Waterloo and McMaster University in Canada before he joined the Computer Science Department of camden campus of Rutgers University; in 2001, he moved to UIC. His specific research interests include application of combinatorial/geometric techniques to design efficient algorithms for computational problems in bioinformatics, systems biology, and hybrid systems; his broader research interests include designing efficient combinatorial algorithms for computationally hard problems in diverse areas in addition to bioinformatics such as computational geometry, VLSI/CAD, parallel computing, optical networks, and combinatorial auctions. His research works have been supported by numerous NSF grants. He received the prestigious NSF CAREER Award in 2004.
