Shantenu is a Professor of Computer Engineering at Rutgers University and the Chair of the Department (Center) for Data Driven Discovery at Brookhaven National Laboratory.

Shantenu’s research interests are at the intersection of high-performance distributed computing and computational & data-driven science. He is the PI of RADICAL Lab and the lead investigator of RADICAL-Cybertools project which are a suite of middleware building blocks used to support large-scale science and engineering applications. He is proud to play a part in the upcoming revolution at the interface of computing and health-science — global health and “personalized” medicine. He collaborates extensively with scientists from multiple domains – including but not limited to Molecular Sciences, Earth Sciences and High-Energy Physics.

Shantenu is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award (2013), the Special Gordon Bell Award (2020) and several other prizes at SC’xy and ISC’xy. He lead the team that was awarded the IEEE SCALE 2018. Shantenu was the recipient of the inaugural Chancellor’s Excellence in Research (2016) for his cyberinfrastructure contributions to computational science. He was also awarded a Rutgers Board of Trustees Fellowship for Scholarly Excellence (2014) and appointed a Rutgers Chancellor’s Scholar in 2015.

Jha seeks fearless and revolutionary young minds to join the RADICAL (thinking) group! Away from work, he tries middle-distance running and biking, tends to be an economics-junky, enjoys reading and writing random musings and tries to use his copious amounts of free time with a conscience.
