Bio I am a PhD Student under the Biomedical Informatics Training Program, Stanford University School of Medicine. I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur under the Dual Degree Programme - Bachelor (Honours) and Master of Technology, in Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering. During my stay at IIT, I had qualified for the prestigious Google Summer of Code Program for 3 successive years. I have contributed to Drupal, an open-source content management platform, and Genome Informatics - Reactome Project, a knowledgebase of biological pathways.
I am interested to research at the intersection of Biosciences, Big Data and the Web. After my graduation, I had joined the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), Ireland under its Health Care and Life Sciences Unit. I was responsible for the development of user-driven platforms, facilitating intuitive data exploration, for the EU FP7 GRANATUM Project, Linked TCGA Project and the Ireland's Open Data Initiative (Data.gov.ie). I was a part of the team, which won the Best Paper Award at CSHALS 2014 and the Semantic Web Challenge Award (Big Data Prize) at ISWC 2013.
