Srinivas Aluru is a professor in the School of Computational Science and Engineering within the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology. He conducts research in high performance computing, bioinformatics and systems biology, and big data analysis in life sciences. He pioneered the development of parallel methods in computational biology, and contributed to the assembly and analysis of complex plant genomes. His group is currently focused on developing bioinformatics methods for high-throughput DNA sequencing, particularly error correction and genome assembly. In systems biology, his group is working on network inference methods using mutual information and Bayesian approaches, and network analysis techniques to further the knowledge of partially characterized pathways. Aluru is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). He is a recipient of the NSF Career award (1997), IBM faculty award (2002), Swarnajayanti fellowship from the Government of India (2007), and Iowa State University Award for Outstanding Achievement in Research (2011).
