Dr. Ratnesh Sahay

Head of Research Unit

Insight Centre for Data Analytics, NUI Galway, Ireland

I am passionate about connecting variety of data (graph, images, key-value, stream , table, text, tree) and retrieve such interconnected data in a manner that:

  •   >  Allow simultaneous querying from native data stores without converting data to a single data model

  •   >  Expose the multi-dimensional connectivity of data (such as knowledge graph)

  •   >  Allow traversal of complex entities across distributed data end-points

  •   >  Help infer associations and analytics between given data and knowledge entities

I am interested in developing technologies that can ease the access of interconnected healthcare (phenotype) and genomics (genotype) data which will ultimately bring precision medicine into the clinical use. I approach towards the precision medicine from a data (computational) perspective. I have always believed that the human health and disease is one area which can immensely benefit from connecting the vast pools of data ecosystems (electronic health records, clinical trials reports, genetic discoveries, climate and environmental changes).

Specialties: Electronic Health Records (EHRs), Cancer Genomics, Linked Data, Graph Technologies & Analytics.
