Beer, Randall Cognitive Science Program, College of Arts and Science / IUB
Escanciano, Juan Carlos Economics, College of Arts and Sciences / IUB
Bio: Dr. Juan Carlos Escanciano is originally from Madrid, Spain. He attended Universidad Complutense de Madrid, where he received a B.S. in math, and University Carlos III de Madrid where he received a Ph.D. in Economics in 2004. Following two years on the faculty of the Universidad de Navarra, in Pamplona, Spain, Dr. Escanciano came to Indiana University in 2006 as an Assistant Professor of Economics. His research interests fall broadly into the area of econometric theory and applications, with a recent emphasis on identification of flexible econometric models.

Saykin, Andrew J. Radiology and Imaging Sciences, School of Medicine / IUPUI
Bio: Dr. Saykin is the Raymond C. Beeler Professor of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Indiana University School of Medicine where he serves as director of the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center and of the IU Center for Neuroimaging. He also holds appointments in Medical and Molecular Genetics, Neurology and Psychiatry. Before joining Indiana University in 2006 he served on the faculties of Dartmouth Medical School and the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Saykin serves as Genetics Core leader of the NIA-sponsored multicenter Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI). Other collaborative federally sponsored projects examine cognitive changes associated with cancer chemotherapy, brain injury and schizophrenia. Dr. Saykin is the founding Editor-in-Chief of Brain Imaging and Behavior. His current research program focuses on the integration of structural, functional and molecular brain imaging with genomic and biomarker methods to study mechanisms of memory dysfunction and therapeutic response. Major goals include development of tools for early detection of dysregulated brain networks in older adults at risk for Alzheimer’s disease and identification of novel therapeutic targets based on imaging genetics association studies.

Wu, Xiaogang Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, School of Informatics and Computing / IUPUI
Bio: Xiaogang Wu received his PhD degree in 2005 on Control Science and Engineering from Huazhong University of Science & Technology (HUST), Wuhan, China. One year after that, he was appointed to associate professor of the Institute for Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence (IPRAI) in HUST. He has over 10 years of research experience in image processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, chaotic dynamics and complex systems. His previous research focused on nonlinear dynamical analysis of complex models, especially estimating parameters of chaotic systems by nonlinear time series analysis, symbolic dynamics and chaos synchronization, etc. He is currently a Bioinformatics Scientist in the Hood Lab at Institute for Systems Biology (ISB). Before he joined ISB, he was a Research Scientist in the School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC) at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). He was also affiliated with Indiana Center for Systems Biology and Personalized Medicine (CSBPM, a signature center in Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis). His current research focuses on bioinformatics and systems biology, e.g., applying machine learning, swarm intelligence, and complex network modeling techniques into identifying systems biomarkers for early diagnosis and predicting drug responses based on systems pharmacology. He is also an Associate Editor of Frontiers in Systems Biology since 2009.
Yan, Xiaoran IU Network Science Institute / IUB
Bio: Xiaoran Yan is an Assistant Research Scientist at Indiana University Network Science Institute. His research concerns mathematical theories and models of networks, with a focus on community structures and dynamical processes on networks. Through cross-disciplinary collaborations, his work is being applied to diverse areas including social networks, neuroimaging and science of science studies. He worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Information Sciences Institute of University of Southern California. Before that, he was a graduate fellow at Santa Fe Institute. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science at University of New Mexico.
