Senior Assistant Professor, Computational Neurodevelopment and Machine Learning
Joined IBAB in 2023.

Shyam completed his master’s degree in computer science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT) and a PhD in Information Sciences & Engineering from the University of Canberra, Australia. His thesis focused on a computational understanding of human interactive behaviours with a focus on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). He worked in the area of “Multimodal Machine Learning” where he developed a novel multi-view algorithm for integrating multimodal information for efficient learning. He went on to do postdoctoral work at the Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. He worked on a large project that aims to build prediction models for neurodevelopmental disorders using clinical and genomic information. In addition, he worked on other projects analyzing genetic information in intervention outcomes, genomics studies in different neurodevelopmental disorder cohorts and analyzing functional genomics data generated from patient-derived neurons. He worked in the software industry for 25+ yrs in premier multinational organizations, such as Citrix and Adobe Systems. He worked in senior leadership roles (Senior Director of Engineering), leading large teams and shipping successful software products in the cloud technology domain.
