Bio sketch and interests:  Joseph J. Nalluri holds a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Pune, India. He got his M.S. in Computer Science from Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi, Texas in 2012. His Master's thesis involved working with hyperspectral images on parallel computing frameworks. He got his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2017 with a focus on bioinformatics/computational biology. His doctoral thesis was on developing network theoretic algorithms and applications to decipher patterns and associations between miRNAs and its interaction with genes, transcription factors and SNPs within the context of cancerous diseases.  He is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Dept. of Radiation Oncology at Virginia Commonwealth University. His current work includes - (i) developing an integrated data analytics platform capable of data aggregation, quality assessment and predictive analytics of radiation therapy (RT) treatment plans consisting of clinical data and RT imaging (e.g., DICOM), (ii) creating pseudo-CT images from MRI images using convolutional neural networks and other approaches. His interests lie in developing applications that leverage machine learning in clinical data. Outside of work, he enjoys reading books and playing tennis and badminton competitively.
