We are delighted to announce that Dr. Shawn Brown joined the MMBioS team and will also serve as a member of the Executive Committee. Mr. Brown was recently selected as the next director of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC). Brown’s work uses high performance computing, informatics and computational modeling to advance research in scientific fields, including neuroscience and public health. Shawn joined the PSC from McGill University in Montreal where he served as the Chief Technology Officer of the Neurohub Project and Associate Director of Research Software Development at the McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience. While at McGill, he led the development of the infrastructure of two large-scale platforms, Neurohub and CBRAIN, which use high-performance computing, machine-learning and artificial intelligence to analyze diverse datasets to advance neuroscience and mental health research. This marks Brown’s return to PSC. While at PSC from 2005-2017 he developed six computational platforms for public health research and published research on obesity prevention, infectious diseases and vaccine strategies. He also served as a faculty at the Department of Biostatistics at Pitt Graduate School of Public Health. Welcome to our team Shawn, we are excited to have you join the MMBioS team!
