About the event

Professor Ananth Kalyanaraman will discuss the growing relationship and alliance between computing and scientists that are seeking to create healthier life at the annual Anjan Bose Outstanding Researcher Lecture.

As the Boeing Centennial Chair in Computer Science, Kalynaraman holds numerous research achievements on parallel computational biology and high-performance computing. His career at WSU has led to him procuring over $3 million in funding and over 100 published papers in prestigious outlets. His ability to conduct his work and graduate successful doctoral students is admirable and he is recognized in the international bioinformatics and high-performance computing research communities.

Over the last several decades, most of the fundamental discoveries in life sciences have been a product of science harnessing computing to explore the power of data. A new era of sequenced genomes is approaching and it will lead toward effective preventative care, precision medicine and precision agriculture.

Kalyanaraman has been a professor at WSU since 2006. Last year, he was named the Voiland College outstanding researcher and he is a recipient of a U.S. Department of Energy Early Carrer Research Award, given to untenured researchers who show outstanding research early in their careers.

The Anjan Bose Outstanding Researcher Award was created by the Executive Leadership Board for the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture along with friends and alumni to honor Anjan Bose for his service to the college as dean. To acknowledge Bose’s support of faculty scholarship and to honor his internationally renowned reputation for research, the award annually recognizes and rewards the top faculty researcher in the college.
