About Shantanu

I'm a hustler, deeply passionate about technology-focused businesses. I bring a diverse professional experience, encompassing financial services, tech startups, healthcare and quantitative research. I currently serve as CTO of Yellowdig, an EdTech analytics company, with offices in Philadelphia and New York. I am responsible for leading Yellowdig's technology, data science and research initiatives.

Previously, I was a Vice President at Goldman Sachs Technology Division, leading product development of reliable and regulation compliant trading applications. I was a Lead Scientist at GE Research, where I used scalable data mining algorithms to learn from large scale healthcare and financial datasets. I was an early employee at Mismi, a venture funded tech start-up, a Technology Vice President at Citigroup and a Quantitative Strategist at Tower Research Capital.

I have a PhD with Computational Biophysics emphasis from UNC Chapel Hill and a BTech in Computer Science & Engineering from IIT Kanpur. I have taught courses to graduate and undergraduate level students and published over a dozen peer-reviewed research articles having hundreds of citations.
