Amulya Shastry

Hello, I am a PhD student in Bioinformatics program at BU. I am co-mentored by Dr. Campbell and Dr. Stefano Monti. I joined the Campbell lab in summer of 2022 after doing a rotation. I have bachelors of engineering in Biotechnology from Visweswaraya technological University (VTU) and masters in Bioinformatics from Northeastern University. I have previously worked at FLNCR/NIH, as a Bioinformatics Analyst. Currently my research focuses on using machine learning approaches to understand host-driven sub-phenotypes in severe pneumonia. My other research interests involve microbiome research, cancer genomics and bioinformatics pipeline development.

I am a Ph.D. student in the Bioinformatics Program at Boston University. I joined the lab in 2022 and I am focusing on mutational signature discovery and prediction, as well as the benchmarking of deconvolution algorithms. I received my undergraduate degree in quantitative biology at the University of Delaware, where I developed a pipeline for the meta-analysis of sex-based differences in human sequencing studies.

Research: I am a Computer Science graduate and have focused on development of interactive computational tools for analysis of high-throughput biological data. Previously, I developed a standalone and streamlined interactive tool for easy analysis of microarray data. My current work revolves around development of various parts of the ‘singleCellTK’ shiny R-based toolkit and an R package to manage subsets of Bioconductor experiment objects. Email:
