Sourav S Bhowmick is an Associate Professor in the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University and the Research Lead, DMAL. He is affiliated with the Data Management Research Group @ NTU (DANTE), Social Analytics Research (SONAR) Group, and Computational and System Biology (COSBY) Group. He was a Visiting Associate Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA (2006-2012). He is currently a Senior Visiting Prof at Fudan Univ, China. Sourav received his Ph.D. in computer engineering in 2001.

Sourav’s core research expertise is in the field of data management and analytics. His current research interests is multi-disciplinary in flavor, focusing primarily on the following two types of research: (a) Rethinking widely-accepted traditional data management techniques due to progress in other domains (e.g., HCI). (b) Exploring novel and important data management/analytics problems at the interfaces of non-computer science disciplines such as social science and systems biology.

He has published more than 150 papers in major international data management, data mining, bioinformatics, and systems biology venues such as VLDB, ICDE, WWW, SIGMOD, CIDR, SIGKDD, MM, EDBT, CIKM, BCB, SIGHIT, TKDE, VLDB Journal, Bioinformatics, and Biophysical Journal. The common thread running through his research is a focus on going beyond papers to build usable novel systems and prototypes.

Sourav is serving as a PC member of various data management and mining conferences and reviewer for various data management journals. He has served as a program chair/co-chair of several international conferences and workshops. He is a member of the editorial boards of several international journals. Sourav has been tutorial speaker in several international conferences such as ER 2006, APWeb 2008, WAIM 2008, PAKDD 2009 and 2011, DASFAA 2011 and 2012, and ADMA 2012. He has received Best Paper Awards in ACM CIKM 2004 and ACM BCB 2011.
