Ganesh Sriram

(Lab website | UM faculty profile)

Dr. Ganesh Sriram is Keystone Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Affiliate Faculty Member in the Bioengineering and Plant Biology graduate programs at University of Maryland. After earning his bachelor's and master's degrees in chemical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, he graduated a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Iowa State University in 2004, working in the lab of Dr. Jacqueline Shanks. From 2004 to 2007, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the labs of Dr. Katrina Dipple and Dr. James Liao at UCLA.

Dr. Sriram's research interests are metabolic engineering and systems biology, especially metabolic flux analysis and gene regulatory network analysis. See lab research page for more information.
