Anthony Costa is a computational scientist with a highly interdisciplinary background. He has worked in many diverse elds such as fluid dynamics, multivariate statistics and machine learning, statistical and quantum mechanics, computational genomics, and medical imaging. His current research interests include computational tools for medical image analysis and visualization, especially as they bridge the intersection of supercomputing and direct patient care. He is the author of many high-impact publications in many fields, and currently leads the Simulation and Modeling programs at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, Director of the Neurosurgery Simulation core, and Director of the Medical Modeling Core there. Previously, he chaired the first annual instantiation of this workshop at SC16.
