Kevin Archie, Ph.D.
Kevin received a Ph.D. in computational neuroscience from the University of Southern California (Go Trojans!) and a B.S. in computer science from CalTech (Go… uh, Beavers!). He recently completed a postdoc in the laboratory of Ralf Wessel in the Physics Dept. at Washington University. His knowledge of the obscure intricacies of the DICOM format has been invaluable to the NRG team.
Joel spent time as an XNAT and CNDA programmer for a number of years here. He received a BS in computer science with a minor in psychology from the University of Missouri Rolla (now Missouri Institute for Science and Technology) followed by many years in the corporate world. Joel spends his free time with his family and friends, performing with St. Louis Osuwa Taiko (Japanese ensemble drumming) and raising two boys.
Justin joined us in 2013, having developed software for the USPS. He can contribute equally on front end and back end development, and has a lot of experience in technologies that we anticipate bringing into XNAT. In his spare time, Justin spends a lot of time outdoors and has quite a few stories to tell from the Black Rock desert in Nevada.
Patrick Clough, Watchman Software Testing
Patrick was there to see Cornwallis surrender at Yorktown, was indicted in the Teapot Dome Scandal, sparred with John L. Sullivan, played in Count Basie’s horn section at the Cotton Club, attended Woodstock (twice), invented the Rubik’s Cube, fought the law and won, and currently has a bridge for sale in Brooklyn. Wait, sorry, none of that is true. He is actually simply the QA guy at NRG and loves spending time with his family of 5 going on 6… but does hold a double PhD from Johns Hopkins in Molecular Engineering and Golf Course Turf Management. No! More lies! The QA and family thing, though, that’s legit.
Amanda is an undergraduate student at Rochester Institute of Technology studying Bioinformatics. In between studying, sleeping, and being goofy with friends, I enjoy reading, getting outside to play softball, tennis, or frisbee, and learning new things (like karate and how to make pottery on a potter’s wheel).
Matt House joined our team after an extended stay in the Center for Clinical Imaging Research (CCIR) at Wash U. Matt immediately took charge of the technical management of our neuroinformatics platform, and provided a tremendous increase in our networking capability and flexibility. Matt has since moved on to the newly-formed CTO office at the Washington University Medical School.
Sunil received a Master of Architecture (Honors) from WashU and a BA in Computer Science from Duke University. Originally from “the Lou,” Sunil spent a number of years working in Seattle before returning to his hometown for grad school. His career background includes virtual reality, tech consulting, architecture and now neuroinformatics (strangely, they’ve all informed one another). When not preoccupied with the task at hand, Sunil enjoys spending time with his family, reading esoteric architectural theory and touting the merits of bacon.
Timothy Olsen, Deck5 Consulting
Tim completed Bachelor’s degrees in Philosophy and Political Science at the University of Illinois in Champaign / Urbana, IL and a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Illinois State University. The former lead developer of XNAT, Tim currently runs Deck 5 Consulting. Tim is feverishly renovating his new house under the watchful eyes of his ever expanding family.
Mohana holds a Masters in Mathematics from University of Pune, India. She develops XNAT’s image visualization and automated processing technologies. Mohana cooks a mean curried chicken and is a proud mother.
James received his BS in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro,TN. After working with the CNDA team, he left to become a programmer at Vanderbilt University. In his spare time he enjoys cooking, reading, playing guitar and biking.
Shamima spent time in the trenches of pre-release testing. She completed a BA at St Louis University in 1991. She took a hiatus from the work force to stay home with her wonderful daughters: Malayka and Layla. Once the kids were in school, Shamima started working on a degree in Information Systems. In her spare time (if there is such a thing when one is raising two children), Shamima enjoys reading, playing scrabble, sudoku, playing on the wii with her kids and husband Michael, and being the queen of Harry Potter trivia (the books, not the movies).
Jordan graduated from Washington University with a BS in computer science. He spent some time teaching guitar lessons, slinging stock market data, and managing cardiovascular imaging data. Jordan left the XNAT team to co-found Juristat and currently serves as their CIO. In his spare time he plays in various bands, works on old porsches, and is teaching himself quantitative finance.
