Aloha! I’m Shubhankar (aka Shuby), an inhabitant of Planet Earth, an intra-galactic spaceship harboring sentient life, on a journey into the depths of the cosmos. In the past, I’ve worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, as a Caltech Research Fellow, with Dr. David Thompson to better understand the relation between climate change and coral reef degradation, and help steward these complex ecosystems into the future. Prior to that, I was at the National Center for Radio Astrophysics (TIFR) working with Dr. Yogesh Wadadekar and Dr. C.H. Ishwara Chandra , designing high performance data science pipelines to enable new cosmological insights in radio astronomy. More recently, I’ve been working in the Mobility, Networks, and Systems group at Microsoft Research, with Dr. Venkat Padmanabhan designing algorithms to analyze performance in large scale computer networks. I’m passionate about applying principles from the information sciences to draw deep insights in challenging problems at the cutting edge of fundamental research. In my spare time I love reading books, listening to music, and trying new types of food.
