Dr. Ivo Dinov directs the Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR), co-directs the multi-institutional Probability Distributome Project, and is an associate director for education of the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS).
Dr. Dinov is an expert in mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, computational processing and visualization of Big Data. He is involved in longitudinal morphometric studies of human development (e.g., Autism, Schizophrenia), maturation (e.g., depression, pain) and aging (e.g., Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases). Dr. Dinov is developing, validating and disseminating novel technology-enhanced pedagogical approaches for scientific education and active learning.
Dr. Wen’s current research interests include topics in Bayesian model comparison, Bayesian multiple hypothesis testing and probabilistic graphical models. In applied field, he is particularly interested in seeking statistically sound and computationally efficient solutions to scientific problems in areas of genetics and functional genomics.
Dr. Gonzalez studies judgment and decision making processes at both the basic and applied levels. His theoretical work includes formal models of decision making under risk and uncertainty. His applied work in decision making extends to eyewitness identification, medical decision making, consumer behavior, transportation decisions and sustainability. He also conducts mathematical modeling of group processes and develops statistical techniques for data analytic problems in psychology. He has developed statistical models for the analysis of dyadic data. Gonzalez teaches graduate-level statistics courses and directs the Biosocial Methods Collaborative. He has been at University of Michigan’s Psychology department since 1997, with joint appointments in Statistics and Marketing. He is a Research Professor at the Research Center for Group Dynamics as well as the Center for Human Growth and Development. He is also a Faculty Associate of the UM Comprehensive Cancer Clinic and the Center for Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics. He co-founded and co-directed with Panos Papalambros the Design Science Program at the University of Michigan. He is currently director of the Biosocial Methods Collaborative at the Institute of Social Research.
Martin Swany is Deputy Director of the Center for Research in Extreme Scale Technologies (CREST) at the Indiana University in Bloomington. His research interests include high-performance parallel and distributed computing and networking.
Cynthia Chestek is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering – Electrical and Computer Engineering Division, and the Neurosciences Graduate Program.
Shawn McKee is a Research Scientist in the Department of Physics, and the Director of MICDE’s Center for Network and Storage-Enabled Collaborative Computational Science.
He is also the U-M site director for ATLAS Great Lakes Tier 2, which provides 4,000 CPUs cores and 3.5 petabytes of storage for ATLAS physics computing. McKee’s research interests are mainly in two parts: using the ATLAS detector to search for Dark-Matter (assuming it has a particle physics origin; and researching distributed data-intensive infrastructures to improve their ability to support high-energy physics and similar distributed e-Science efforts.
August (Gus) Evrard is Arthur F. Thurnau Professor in the departments of Physics and Astronomy, and the Michigan Center for Theoretical Physics. He serves as Associate Director for Community Engagement with ARC. Professor Evrard is a computational cosmologist who models the formation and evolution of large-scale cosmic structure. He currently co-leads the Simulation Working Group for the US-led Dark Energy Survey and is a member of the XMM-XXL project and Virgo Consortium based in Europe. His research uses N-body and hydrodynamic methods to study the formation of galaxies and clusters of galaxies. The simulations also produce synthetic expectations for astronomical sky surveys, providing truth tables that are essential for verifying data handling and statistical processing methods applied to survey data to study the nature of dark matter and dark energy. Professor Evrard was named a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2011 and an ORCID Ambassador in 2013. He is active in instructional technology at Michigan, founding the Academic Reporting Tool service in use since 2006 and Problem Roulette, a cloud-based study service that offers random, topical access to old exam questions for students in introductory physics classes.
