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.

About the Center

Informatics is the science of information, information processing, and the study of structures, algorithms, behaviour, 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, including bioinformatics; cheminformatics; systems biology; social, biological and computer networks; materials informatics; drug design; cognitive sciences; statistical and machine learning.

Parthapratim Munshi

Parthapratim Munshi received his PhD under the supervision of Prof. T. N. Guru Row, Solid State and Structural Chemistry Unit, Indian Institute of Science (IISc.), Bangalore. His doctoral research was focused on the study of intermolecular interactions in molecular crystals via experimental and theoretical charge density analysis. Dr. Munshi then carried out postdoctoral research in Prof. Mark A Spackman's Group at the University of Western Australia (2005-2008), where he focused on the study of nonlinear optical properties of molecular crystals.
