Our Founder's Story

CEO and Founder Shashi Mudunuri became passionate about research communication through his personal experience as the son of an academic who struggled to get published due to language barriers. In 2004, he founded AJE to help researchers around the world overcome the challenges his father faced. Since that time, we have grown in ways we never imagined. As our company evolved, the Research Square brand came into its own as a preprint platform and innovator in research communication. Not only have we successfully helped solve problems for authors preparing their work for publication, but we have helped researchers disseminate their work more quickly and widely than ever before.
