Curriculum Vitae

I am currently a Ph.D. student working on Visualization Recommendation for Biodiversity Data. Within the same profile, I am engaged in the development of different visualization components for scientific data management platform. I have done my Master Research from Ecole Polytechnique de l’Université de Tours in 2014. Within the same year, I have done a 6-month internship in the university lab. Here, I did a research on ‘Using a visualization as an aid to clean open datasets’. Before that, I received my taught master at Middlesex University London on Computer and Network Security. My Bachelors degree is in Information Technology from India. For my studies in London and France, I have been awarded a partial fee waiver studentship, on the basis of my educational background

Current Projects

Biodiversity Exploratories - Core Project 4: Data Management
The Central Data Management Project of the Biodiversity Exploratories (BE) Research provides the platform for data storage and information exchange between the different working groups. In this regard, we support BE researchers in their data management activities which includes data collection planning, description, storage and archiving, quality management, discovery, integration, analysis, visualization, publishing and sharing. Such support includes the management of data repository infrastructure, development of tools to support the above listed activities,  help desk, etc. Most of the services  we provide to the researchers are delivered through its online platform called BExIS (Biodiversity Exploratory Information System). BExIS is the data repository and information exchange platform…
