Dr. Pandurangan is a mathematician and has completed his doctorate from the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. His interest area includes application of artificial intelligence techniques in data analytics. Prior to his current position, he served as a molecular biomarker data specialist at PointCross.com Pvt. Ltd., a company which develops software products for the clinical research industry. At PointCross, he has contributed to the design and development of a software product "Xbiom Insights" which has been used to integrate, search and analyze pre-clinical, clinical and molecular biomarker data.
During his tenure as the Professor of Mathematics at the VIT University, Dr. Pandurangan mentored a research student who submitted his Ph.D. thesis on network based drug target identification with cancer perspective. Dr. Pandurangan has conducted his postdoctoral research in computational cancer genomics at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, New York and worked on the detection and characterization of human structural variants. In addition, he has designed and spearheaded the development of a webserver “HORI”, and an algorithm “HORIBALFRE” to solve the grand challenging problem (protein structure prediction) in bioinformatics. Dr. Pandurangan initiated computational systems biology research at IIT Roorkee and has been the first researcher in India to have submitted a Ph.D. thesis on systems biology of signaling networks.
Prior to his research endeavors, Dr. Pandurangan acquired ample experience in the field of teaching where he has taught statistical methods, machine learning algorithms, operations research, numerical methods, graph theory and engineering mathematics for engineering students.
