Pinnamaneni Bhanu Prasad received his M.Sc in Applied Mathematics and Ph.D in Engineering from Andhra University, India. He spent major part of his professional life in the US, Europe and Paris.

Bhanu became interested in Vedic Astrology when he met Smt. Lakshmi Ramesh during a visit to the holy temple city of Tirupati at the holy feet of Lord Venkateswara and Lord Shiva. This led to his study of Jyotish through the “Parāśara Jyotişa Course” with Pt. Sanjay Rath and qualification as “Jyotişa Paņḍita” from “Devaguru Brihaspati Center”.

Bhanu also completed “Jaimini Scholar Program”, taught on traditional lines by Jaimini India team (Sarbani Rath, B.Lakshmi Ramesh, Ajay Zharotia), as envisaged by Pt. Sanjay Rath.

Prior to taking up a career in astrology, Bhanu worked in developing mathematical algorithms for industrial applications and guided students in multi-disciplinary applied subjects based in Paris, France. He had given numerous invited lectures at universities and conferences around the globe on mind map based learning and multi-disciplinary approach. With the experience of development of open source software, Bhanu is interested in developing open source Vedic Astrology (Jyotish) software that will be useful for the Jyotish community.

Other interests are learning, sharing, mentoring, trekking in high mountains and inside deep forests.
