Profile of Shantanu Singh
Shantanu Singh is a Senior Group Leader at the Broad Institute and co-leader of the Carpenter-Singh lab. He leads a data science group that develops statistical and machine learning methods to create fingerprints of cellular states from microscopy images. Since 2011, he has led the development of computational methods for Cell Painting, an assay that captures a broad range of morphological traits of cellular populations. The assay is now used by several academic groups and pharma companies to profile large collections of drugs and genetic perturbations for several applications.
Shantanu earned his Ph.D. at Ohio State in Computer Science. He has previously worked in research groups at Mercedes-Benz R&D, GE Global Research, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where he applied computer vision and machine learning techniques to a wide range of problems in road safety, cell biology, and geospatial imaging
