Center for Informatics

Informatics is the science of information, information processing, and the study of structures, algorithms, behavior, and interactions of natural and artificial systems that store, process, access and communicate information. The science of informatics thus overlaps a wide range of disciplines.

 

The Center for Informatics was founded under the aegis of the School of Natural Sciences (SoNS), Shiv Nadar University. Informatics is the science of information, information processing, and the study of structures, algorithms, behaviors and interaction of natural and artificial systems that store, process, access and communicate information. The science of informatics thus overlaps a wide range of disciplines. The center also encompasses research - linking different subject areas and fields.

Specific research programs and areas in the Center are set by the individual faculty, who nucleate inter-disciplinary research in select areas, exploiting synergies between overlapping programs in one or more schools the University. The current research focus includes Bioinformatics and Cheminformatics; Computational Nanoscience; Design of Organic Dyes and Organic / Polymer Semiconductors.

Head, Center for Informatics

Vijay Kumar

Prof. Kumar started his research career in theory of disordered alloys and received his Ph.D. from University of Roorkee under the supervision of Prof. S.K. Joshi. In 1979 he was awarded the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship in Germany where he worked on problems related to surfaces of metals and alloys. He returned to India in 1985 in Reactor Research Center (now Indira Gandhi Center for Atomic Research), Kalpakkam and worked in the area of quasicrystals – a hot topic at that time.

Jayaraman Valadi

40 years of Research experience. Worked at National Chemical Laboratory, Pune in various capacities from 1976 and retired as Deputy Director in 2009. After that worked as a CSIR Emeritus scientist and consultant at CDAC, Pune between 2009 & 2015. Working as a visiting Professor at Shiv Nadar University since 2013 and as an adjunct professor at Pune University since 2016.

Ashutosh Singh

Translational Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics Lab

Our lab research goal is to identify and develop gene signatures for human diseases using underlying principles of gene expression and to explore how variations or defects in gene regulation cause phenotypic variation or diseases. We conduct our research using an integrative approach along with bioinformatics we also incorporate genomics, transcriptomics. Currently working on drug designing and Next generation sequencing of tropical region diseases and Cancer.
