I direct the NRG and oversee the XNAT project. I'm involved in various projects and studies that utilize XNAT including the Human Connectome Project and the NCI's Imaging Informatics Program. At the workshop, I'm looking forward to working on container service and analytic interfaces for XNAT.
Lead XNAT Developer
Raised in the Deep South (Tampa), Rick was moved to California by the U.S.A.F., where he adapted well to the mild weather.
He graduated from U.C. Santa Cruz (go Slugs, 1991 National Champion in Ultimate Frisbee!) with a degree in Politics. He met his future wife while attending Avocado Sundae shows. They got married, had a daughter, moved to Long Beach, CA, hated the L.A. traffic, and now reside in Webster Groves, MO.
Rick drives a Jeep Wrangler, plays guitar (Paul Reed Smith, Stratocaster,
Experience: I have been running one or more studies on XNAT since 2015
Works at Erasmus MC as a IT project lead and Scientific Programmer. Has experience with XNAT from version 1.5.
We have integrated XNAT in our research infrastructure mainly for archiving dicom data and quantitative imaging biomarkers.
XNAT instances we are running:
Very interested in the DevOps concepts, mostly configuration management, orchestration and CI/CD.
XNAT Pipeline / Container Services Developer
Flavin (nobody ever calls him "John") does pipeline development for the CNDA, and development on Automation and Container Services for XNAT.
He graduated from WashU in 2012 with his PhD in Physics, and after spending a year working for a St. Louis tech startup, he found his way back to campus (albeit on the other side of Forest Park from where he began).
Flavin has BS degrees in Physics and Math from Mizzou. A St. Louis native currently residing in Webster Groves, he enjoys bicycling with his wife, Gayle, and their son.
Tim is the original lead developer of XNAT, which makes him the figurative grandfather of all XNAT code. Tim is also the literal father of five children who have come into the world since the inception of XNAT 1.0.
Tim currently lives in Bloomington IL and continues to develop code for the extended XNAT universe, including clinical trial applications of XNAT.
CRUK Cancer Imaging Centre
Experience: I have been using and customizing XNAT for many years
Current Project: Three principal XNAT platforms implemented:
|Matt South||Oxford University|
Experience: I've been tending two research focused XNAT instances over the last two years in a DevOps role.
Current Project: Dementias Platform UK
|Daniel Erkan||German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases|
Experience: DevOps on several XNAT instances over the last two years,
Current Project: Integrating XNAT into our Clinical Research Platform (a somewhat complex, distributed DB system).
|Simon Jones||University of Cambrige |
Department of Clinical Neurosciences
|Imaging analysis and support, mostly in dementia. Need To develop XNAT services for local and international distribution.|
