Postdoctoral Fellow
Phone Number: (
Expertise and Research Interests: 

Dr. Sivarama Krishnan Rajaraman joined the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications (LHNCBC), National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH), as a postdoctoral researcher in 2016. Dr. Rajaraman received his Ph.D. in Information and Communication Engineering from Anna University, Chennai, India. He is involved in projects that aim to apply computational sciences and engineering techniques toward advancing life science applications. These projects involve the use of medical images for aiding healthcare professionals in low-cost decision-making at the point of care screening/diagnostics. He is a versatile researcher with expertise in machine learning, data science, biomedical image analysis/understanding, and computer vision. He has more than 15 years of experience in academia where he taught core and allied subjects in biomedical engineering. He has authored several national and international journal and conference publications in his area of expertise. He is being mentored by Sameer Antani, PhD., Staff Scientist, Communications Engineering Branch, NLM, NIH.
