Who Inspire Us
Deb Agarwal is a computer scientist at the Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory, where she works with
the Distributed Collaboratories Project. The goal of the project is
to research, develop and deploy the technologies needed to advance
distributed collaboratory environments which allow researchers to
collaborate on scientific experiments by providing remote access to
holds her Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from UC Berkeley.
She wrote her thesis on reliable multicasting and later worked with
this groundbreaking technology at the Department of Energy.
coming to the Lawrence Berkeley Lab, Agarwal has worked on the Advanced
Visualization Communication Toolkit and the Collaboratory Interoperability
Framework; she has also worked for the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty
Organization. Her work on these projects has had the goal of providing
advanced communication capabilities, including reliable multicast,
to specific application domains. Her newest project, the Advanced
Visualization Communication Toolkit, will allow visualization applications
to have direct access to network status information and to directly
control communication protocol and network behavior.
