My name is Alok. I am a PhD student at the University of Tennessee. I am studying large data visualization under Dr. Jian Huang.

I was born in Tennessee, but my family is from Orissa, India. I enjoy listening to music, watching movies, programming, and working out. Graduate school takes up a lot of my time, but whenever possible, I also like to play the keyboard and drums, sing, draw, and sleep.

I like 80-character-wide terminals, base16 tomorrow night, bash, tmux, and vim. I like writing in Python.
