Rakesh Shiradkar, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech School of Engineering and Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Shiradkar is a member of the Discovery and Developmental Therapeutics Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute.


Dr. Shiradkar received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National University of Singapore. He then joined Case Western Reserve University for postdoctoral research in Biomedical Engineering.


Dr. Shiradkar's research focuses on machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) based methods in conjunction with multi-modal imaging data for developing personalized clinical decision support tools. His research involves leveraging multi-modal health care data including imaging, pathology, genomics and demographics to improve disease diagnosis and prognosis, specifically in the context of cancer. He has extensively worked on radiomics for cancer risk stratification, diagnosis and prognosis; radio-pathologic correlations between quantitative imaging and histopathology; multi-modal image co-registration; cancer nomograms integrating radiomics with clinical parameters and genomic assays. Specific areas of focus include urologic cancers including prostate and renal cell carcinoma.

Dr. Shiradkar has received multiple grants from funding agencies including the Department of Defense and Mike Slive Prostate Cancer Foundation, as well as pilot grant support from Case Comprehensive Cancer Center and Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.
