Dr. Saumyadipta Pyne, Ph.D.
President and Founder
My research interests include big data systems in life sciences and health informatics, machine learning, high-dimensional data simulation, and modeling to study heterogeneity in populations. I received my Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and was a post-doctoral associate at Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University. Formerly, I held the P.C. Mahalanobis Chair while being a professor and head of bioinformatics at the C.R. Rao Advanced Institute of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science. I was a senior research fellow at the Indian Statistical Institute and a Ramalingaswami fellow of the Indian Department of Biotechnology. I am the founder chairman of the Computer Society of India’s Special Interest Group on Big Data Analytics and adjunct professor of the ICMR National Institute of Medical Statistics. My current projects involve data fusion and disaggregation, geospatial modeling, population synthesis, and microsimulation. I co-edited the title ‘Big Data Analytics’ published by Springer in 2016 and a 2-volume ‘Handbook of Statistics: Disease Modelling and Public Health’ published by Elsevier in 2017.
