Professor of Medicine (General Medical Disciplines) at the Palo Alto Veterans Administration Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My initial research activities involved antiretroviral and novel therapeutic treatments of HIV infection, understanding elements of HIV pathogenesis associated with acute HIV infection and post exposure prevention. My most recent scholarly activities concentrate on working as a team to capitalize on the data stored in electronic medical records, HIV disease modeling and using electronic medical records for outcome research and developing a mentorship program for early career scientists.
Ph.D. Student in Biomedical Informatics, admitted Autumn 2014
Bio I am a PhD Candidate in Biomedical Informatics at 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.
