Davetli Konuşmacılar (Invited Speakers)
Prof. Geoffrey Charles Fox (Indiana University, USA)
Fox received a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University and is now distinguished professor of Informatics and Computing, and Physics at Indiana University where he is director of the Digital Science Center, Chair of Department of Intelligent Systems Engineering and Director of the Data Science program at the School of Informatics and Computing.
He previously held positions at Caltech, Syracuse University and Florida State University after being a postdoc at the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and Peterhouse College Cambridge.
He has supervised the Ph.D. of 68 students and published around 1200 papers in physics and computer science with an index of 70 and over 26000 citations.
He currently works in applying computer science from infrastructure to analytics in Biology, Pathology, Sensor Clouds, Earthquake and Ice-sheet Science, Image processing, Deep Learning, Manufacturing, Network Science and Particle Physics. The infrastructure work is built around Software Defined Systems on Clouds and Clusters. The analytics focuses on scalable parallelism.
He is involved in several projects to enhance the capabilities of Minority Serving Institutions. He has experience in online education and its use in MOOCs for areas like Data and Computational Science.
He is a Fellow of APS (Physics) and ACM (Computing).
Dr. Anshu Dubey (Argonne National Laboratory, USA)
Anshu Dubey received her Ph.D. in computer science from Old Dominion University in 1993, and her B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from IIT Delhi in India. She joined the University of Chicago as a post-doctoral appointee in the Astronomy and Astrophysics department.
She later joined the Flash Center for Computational Science where she was computer science/applications group lead from 2003-2013 and associate director from 2009-2013. From 2013 to 2015 she was on the staff at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where she served as work lead and computer systems engineer in the Applied Numerical Algorithms Group.
In 2015 she joined the Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory as a computer scientist. She has two decades of experience working in the simulation of multi-physics phenomena and has earned wide recognition for her contributions. In 2015 she was named a senior fellow at the Computation Institute.
