Please join us for a UW Data Science Seminar event on Wednesday, April 20th from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. The seminar will feature Adam Glaser, a Senior Scientist from the Allen Institute for Neural Dynamics.

The event will be held in the UW Physics and Astronomy Auditorium (PAA 118)

Title TBD

Abstract: New breakthroughs in microscopy and tissue chemistry are revolutionizing our ability to study the structural and molecular contents of cells, tissues, and organs. Visualizing these components with spatial context and in three dimensions yields a more holistic view of complex biological systems. I am interested in developing the hardware and software tools which will enable the acquisition, visualization, and analysis of these datasets at scale.

Biography: Adam Glaser joined the Allen Institute for Neural Dynamics in 2021. He works in the multi-scale molecular neuroanatomy group, focusing on the development of hardware and software tools for large-scale imaging projects. Prior to joining the institute, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Washington, where he is now an Affiliate Assistant Professor. There he worked in Jonathan Liu’s laboratory, leading the development of open-top light-sheet microscopy systems for three-dimensional clinical pathology. He earned his Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences from Dartmouth College in 2015, and B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Tufts University in 2010.

The UW Data Science Seminar is an annual lecture series at the University of Washington that hosts scholars working across applied areas of data science, such as the sciences, engineering, humanities and arts along with methodological areas in data science, such as computer science, applied math and statistics. Our presenters come from all domain fields and include occasional external speakers from regional partners, governmental agencies and industry.

The 2021-2022 seminars will be both in-person and virtual, and are free and open to the public.
