I obtained a PhD in computational neuroscience from Boston University in 2007. I worked with Prof. Barbara Shinn-Cunningham in the Auditory Neuroscience Lab. My thesis work on source separation grew out of research I did with Paris Smaragdis and Bhiksha Raj during my internships at MERL.

After graduation, I worked as a scientist at Mars and UTRC. After stints at bay area startups, I moved to Austin to build out Data Science at Charles Schwab as Director of Data Science and Machine Learning. I'm now onto my next adventure to transform data security for enterprises as Founder and Chief Scientist at Concentric.

I'm the descendant of an illustrious academic lineage that includes Copernicus, Kant, Helmholtz and Planck. My Erdos Number is 3 (via Romeo Rizzi and Pavol Hell). I am a senior member of the IEEE and served as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems. Check my CV for a detailed profile.

* A note about my patronymic name - my given name is Shashanka, I do not use a family name or a surname. However, most people since grad school have come to know me by my shortened first name 'Madhu'.
