Raminder Singh

Senior Director for Faculty of Arts and Sciences Research Computing (FASRC)

Raminder joined research computing in April 2018 to lead the Data Science and Research Consulting and the team managed job scheduler and cluster software and technical direction/training to FASRC users. In June 2023, Raminder was promoted to Senior Director to lead the group to set operational and strategic directions on both short-term and long-term. His focus is on extending computational resources, improving storage options and data management, and enhancing FASRC's service catalog. 

Before joining, he was Project Lead for Beth Israel's Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation group where he was responsible for building data processing and data management solutions for biomedical data. He also has experience building solutions to process and analyze big data on high performance systems (HPC) and cloud infrastructures. Before moving to Boston in Dec 2016, he worked for Indiana University Research Technology for 8 years. He did his M.B.A./M.S. in Business Analytics from Kelley School of Business, Indian University, and has working experience in Higher Ed. and Industry. 

Research Interests:
Raminder enjoys solving IT challenges and building technology solutions to facilitate research. Automation of scientific workflows and data management are big challenges in research and he is a contributor to the number of software open source projects to help solve this for different research domains.
