"MDS program is designed for students to be successful in the industry. You will be armed with techniques to combat enormous data flow."
Gittu started his academic journey back in 2009. Following his undergrad and master's in Computer Science, he started working in the biotechnology industry as an Engineer. During his industry career, he designed enterprise solutions and computational frameworks for large-scale genome and phenome data. Later his interest in the intersection of computer science and genomics lead him to do a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics from the University of Dundee, UK. During his PhD, he developed novel approaches to accelerate the computational time for genomic algorithms. He joined MDS program as a postdoctoral fellow in 2021.
