Dr. Bartek Rajwa is a Research Associate Professor of Computational Life Sciences in the Bindley Bioscience Center at Purdue University where he is conducting studies on the technology of high-throughput cytometry, high-content imaging, biological image analysis, biological pattern recognition, and applications of statistical machine learning in cell biology, cancer research, and bioengineering. Dr. Rajwa's expertise is in in the use of modern data science in biological research. He is particularly interested in integrating biological data from a variety of linked single-cell technologies from flow cytometry through biological imaging to proteomics and functional genomics. His studies employ mathematical models to decipher and interpret complex phenotypic patterns observed via quantitative cell analysis. Working with collaborators Dr. Rajwa developed new technologies for the biological data science including automated pipelines for clinical flow cytometry analysis, microorganism identification algorithms, and spectral information processing approaches for fluorescence and Raman cytometry. He has also been a co-inventor of two breakthrough hardware technologies: multispectral flow cytometry (licensed by Sony Biotechnology, Inc.), and elastic light scatter microorganism identification system. Since 2009 Dr. Rajwa has been a member of the Editorial Board of Cytometry Part A (the official journal of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry). Since 2013 he has been working as an Associate Editor responsible for the computational cytometry and imaging content of this journal.
