Srikanth Kompella

Srikanth completed a 5-year integrated Master’s in chemistry from University of Hyderabad, and MPhil from Indian Institute of Technology-Mumbai. His MPhil project focused on developing a mathematical model to understand the non-linear dynamics governing the cellular processes underlying the G1/S phase of cell cycle. The complex network model he developed explained the stochasticity of cellular behaviour and also shed light on the mechanisms of some cancers. He later joined a collaborative PhD program offered by the University of Aberdeen (UK) and Curtin University.

His PhD focused on understanding the fundamental process of protein translation in cells, pooling the knowledge from the fields of bioinformatics, mathematical modeling, and molecular modeling. His PhD uncovered the molecular and stochastic processes underlying the unusual diffusion behaviour of proteins and nucleic acids in the presence of macromolecular crowding effect.

He joined the CIC in February 2022 as a data scientist. His role in the CIC involves employing the tools of data science, mathematical and statistical modelling to accelerate problem-solving in industry and research.

His key competencies include:

  • Data mining and curation
  • Data visualization
  • Mathematical and statistical modelling
