Bio

Dr. Nidheesh Melethadathil has been a long-time associate of Amrita Institutions with more than 25 years of experience in teaching and research. Dr. Melethadathil obtained his Ph.D. from the Faculty of Sciences of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, in the area of Bioinformatics. His Ph.D. thesis under the guidance of Dr. Shyam Diwakar, involved designing and developing a semantic information retrieval system using Biomedical Natural Language Processing and document clustering methods to mine scientific articles from open-access databases. Presently his research focuses on biological named entity recognition using artificial intelligence and its application in genome sequencing.

Dr. Melethadathil currently holds the position of Associate Professor at Amrita School of Biotechnology, Amritapuri campus.
