Krithika Bhuvaneshwar, MS

Research Associate II/Bioinformatics


Ms. Krithika Bhuvaneshwar is a Research Associate II/Bioinformatics and Project Manager at the Innovation Center for Biomedical Informatics (ICBI), Georgetown University. She has over 10 years professional work experience and combines her interdisciplinary skills in bioinformatics and biostatistics for numerous projects within ICBI. 

She has applied her bioinformatics expertise to develop novel algorithms and analysis pipelines for clinical, genomic and expression profiling data management, quality control and integrative downstream analysis. Her research responsibilities also include clinical data management; utilizing cloud computing for high throughput bioinformatic analysis of genome sequencing data and other omics data, statistical and probabilistic network analysis, systems biology and pathway analysis. 

Krithika has worked with collaborators in developing supporting evidence to confirm lab findings in publicly available studies. In this regard, she has performed computational analysis of gene expression and RNA-seq data from public datasets in G-DOC, The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), NCBI dbGAP and other datasets from public repository Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO). She is also a project manager for various projects including the Georgetown Database of Cancer (G-DOC)

Apart from her bioinformatics related work, Krithika has been involved in the education and training of national and international students at Georgetown University. She has contributed to the development of massive open online course (MOOC) ‘Demystifying big data in biomedicine – a user’s guide’ for the online education platform - edX; she has also helped with the development of training materials for G-DOC for ‘Translational Bioinformatics’ (SYSM-594) – a graduate level course offered at Georgetown University. Krithika has trained summer interns on using the G-DOC system, and in using the R statistical analysis packages. She has also helped organize training workshops in Elsevier Pathway Studio, Globus Genomics, system, and immuno-oncology, for faculty and staff at Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC).
