Dr Shouryadipta Ghosh

CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellow


Shouryadipta Ghosh is a CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellow with 7+ years of experience in computational modelling of biological systems. As a part of CSIRO's Data61, he is developing multiscale models of different aspects of human digestion, including swallowing of food, emptying of stomach and bacterial interactions in the large intestine (gut microbiome).

Shouryadipta completed his PhD from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Melbourne in 2019. During the PhD, He examined changes in the organization of mitochondria within cells of hearts affected by diabetes. He showed that the spatial arrangement of mitochondria affects the energy distribution within the heart cells and thus the force of a heartbeat. His findings opened new avenues for therapies targeting mitochondria in diabetes-induced heart diseases.

Shouryadipta has multiple research publications spanning across areas like System Biology, Cardiac Physiology, Biomaterials, and Solid Mechanics. His broader career goal is to develop digital twins of cellular and organ-level systems that can be used for personalized medicine. Besides research, he enjoys teaching, developing VR/AR games and hiking with friends.
