Shaon Chakrabarti

Postdoctoral Fellow
Department of Data Sciences, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Shaon studied physics at St. Stephen’s College, Delhi (India) and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur. He then went on to do a PhD in Biophysics at the University of Maryland, College Park, under the guidance of Dave Thirumalai and Christopher Jarzynski.  Shaon’s work involved modeling biological systems using the tools of equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, with a focus on analyzing and interpreting single-molecule experiments involving force. Currently Shaon is using analytical and computational tools to understand the evolutionary dynamics of various cancer types, and come up with optimized drug-dosing schedules to improve treatment responses.
