Madhuban Chaudhary

For six years, Madhuban Chaudhary has served as an enterprise performance management developer in Emory Business Intelligence under LITS. He has an MS in data analytics and a specialization in business analytics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Chaudhary was born in Kashmir, the northmost state of India, and he lived there with his family as part of his father’s military service. He enjoyed growing up in the footsteps of the Himalayan mountain range, where the climate is similar to that of Georgia.

Chaudhary came to the United States initially in 2011 to work as a programmer for the United Nations, and he lived in Jersey City, New Jersey. In 2013, took a consulting position with Emory University. The hiring manager shared that he was the 17th person in this position, which he took as a challenge. He set his sights on performing well to make the position a permanent one, and he succeeded.

"I feel like I am an important part of Emory, and it makes me proud."

In addition to his full-time Emory position, Chaudhary goes above and beyond. He has received 12 industry certifications while at Emory. Working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic gave him the opportunity to spend time completing online courses from various platforms to improve his software, creative, and business skills.

In September 2020, Chaudhary received the Creativity and Innovation Award for his contribution in reconciling the data from Kronos and nurse-scheduling systems to comply with a FEMA reimbursement deadline saving Emory Healthcare close to $20M, earning the nickname, "the $20 Million Man." He said, "I feel like I am an important part of Emory, and it makes me proud."

Chaudhary’s wife is a high school teacher, and they are proud parents of an eight-year-old son and a two-year-old daughter. He has enjoyed working from home and spending quality time with his family, but says that he gets his energy from his colleagues and working in an office environment and, therefore, is looking forward to returning back to campus this fall.

When asked what one thing he will do post-pandemic, he said he can’t wait to meet and greet people again in a normal environment.
