Introduction

Hello! I am Ramanuja, a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Toronto and the University Health Network in Canada. Earlier in August 2016, I graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Delaware in the United States.

My experience includes internships at GE Global Research, LinkedIn, National Center for Atmospheric Research, summer research at Carnegie Mellon University ‒ all in the US, and software engineering at Tesco in the UK and in India.

Research Interests
