Raminder is an IT Project Lead for Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation. He is responsible for building data processing and data management solutions for biomedical data of subjects in different research studies. He has experience building solutions to process and analyze Big Data using high performance systems (HPC) and cloud infrastructures. Before moving to Boston in Dec 2016, he worked for Indiana University Research Technology for 8 years. He is currently pursuing a M.B.A / M.S. dual degree in Business Analytics at the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University and plans to graduate in August 2017.

Research Interests:
Raminder enjoys solving IT challenges and building technology solutions to facilitate research. Automation of scientific workflows and data management are big challenges in research and he is a contributor to the number of software open source projects to help solve this for different research domains.
