Elucidating the genetic code
is a Ph D student in the MIT/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program in Biological Oceanography.Her work focuses on using high-throughput sequence data to better understanding the nutritional physiology and biogeochemical role of marine phytoplankton.His focus is in the collaborative development of robust, reproducible, and scalable software tools for computational science.worked as a software developer for a number of years before completing a Ph D in Medical Imaging writing software chemotherapy response prediction in breast cancer patients at the University of Hull, UK.Russell Alleen-Willems holds an MA in applied archaeology and specializes in archiving and disseminating digital archaeological data and information.He is interested in helping people learn about archaeology, as well as how to use software, including databases, analytical programs, and games, to better analyze, present, share, and interpret archaeology in academia, cultural resource management, and public education.Previously, he was a postdoc at Tufts University where he performed neuroscience research aimed at better understanding learning and memory using high throughput RNA sequencing.As someone who had to slowly gain programming skills to understand the large biological data sets generated by his research, he is excited to make the process a bit easier for others.
His research interests include conservation biology, invasion biology, community ecology, and quantitative ecology.
He is also passionate about teaching programming and data analytics skills to people in non-computer-science or non-IT fields, since he thinks everyone will be able to program, as, for today, everybody can create beautiful documents using word processing applications. in Evolutionary Biology (Michigan State University), an M. Following this she instructed at two universities in Chicago, Illinois. He is enthusiastic about disseminating computational skills. He is now a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Victoria, where he studies coordination and communication in software teams.
Carlos Anderson is a software developer at the University of Michigan Health System, where he collaborates with researchers in radiation therapy in order to improve cancer treatments. An ecological research postdoc at the University of Oslo in Norway further shifted her path, so that now Carrie spends her days working in R (still with fungal data). Mario Antonioletti works on optimising and parallelising codes for high performance computing systems. Dhavide Aruliah is an associate professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in Oshawa, Ontario.
holds a Ph D on Materials Physics and works in the San Sebastian Materials Physics Center – CFM(CSIC-UPV/EHU) as CIO and scientific computing specialist.
There he tries to fill the gap between physicists and computer science, while managing a couple of HPC Clusters and parallelizing some codes in between.
