Chandra Jonelagadda

Chief Operating Officer

  • LinkedIn

Chandra Jonelagadda has spent his career redefining what's possible – imagining what could be, unconstrained by what exists. Before turning his attention to leveraging AI to improve minimally invasive surgery as Kaliber's Chief Operating Officer, Chandra's approach to his work led to his involvement in a wide variety of endeavors. As a member of a multidisciplinary team working to aid counterterrorism efforts, he helped build a platform capable of looking for patterns of suspicious activity without compromising civil liberties. He also created a system to better connect states’ child welfare agencies to speed up interstate foster care and adoption placements. Other notable achievements include building high-performance distributed computing platforms, privacy-preserving distributed analytics, and more recently, enterprise-grade applications of ML and AI. 

 

Chanda received his bachelor’s degree with honors in electrical engineering from the University of Rajasthan and master’s in electrical engineering from Louisiana State University.
