Dr. Paul Sanghera has diverse background in computer science, biosciences, and physics. His graduate degrees include Ph.D. in Physics from Carleton University, Canada; Masters in Computer Science from Cornell University, U.S.A; and MS in Biomolecular Engineering and Bioinformatics from University of California at Santa Cruz, U.S.A. Working Individually and in collaborations, Paul had authored or co-authored about 150 research papers published in American, Canadian, European, and international research journals. His research experience includes working on big data experiments at particle colliders at the cutting-edge high-energy particle physics labs at Cornell and CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research); that’s from where the field of Big Data started. Paul was member of the team of physicist at CERN for whom the World Wide Web was originally invented to meet their computing needs. Dr Sanghera’s research work in physics includes contribution to the Standard Model of the Universe by making most precise measurement of strong nuclear force of nature through testing quantum theory of fundamental particles of nature by analyzing experimental data. 

On the industrial and entrepreneurial side, Paul had been at the ground floor of several startups in Silicon Valley, California and elsewhere, and contributed to the development of state-of-the art technologies such as Novell's NDS, the first computer network management system; Netscape Communicator, the first commercial web browsers and web server; and also one of the first commercial Web storefronts at Weborder Inc that was used by Netscape for its e-commerce system. 

Dr. Paul Sanghera had also authored over dozen of books on diverse topics in science, technology, and project management published by publishers such as Wiley, McGraw-Hill, and Cengage Learning; including an undergraduate college level physics textbook: Quantum Physics for Scientists and Technologist, published by Wiley; three booklets on introductory biology; one book on evolution; and two books on JAVA programming language.     

Dr. Sanghera’s current research and professional Interests are in the areas of Information/Cyber Security, Bioinformatics, and Data Science including Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
