Rick Stevens (ANL)

Professor Rick Stevens is internationally known for work in high-performance computing, collaboration and visualization technology, and for building computational tools and web infrastructures to support large-scale genome and metagenome analysis for basic science and infectious disease research. A current focus is the national initiatives for Exascale computing and Artificial Intelligence (AI). He is the Associate Laboratory Director at Argonne National Laboratory, and a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Chicago. In addition, he is the principle investigator of the NIH-NIAID funded PATRIC Bioinformatics Resource Center, the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) Exascale Deep Learning and Simulation Enabled Precision Medicine for Cancer project, and the predicative models pilot of the DOE-NCI funded Joint Design of Advanced Computing Solutions for Cancer (JDACS4C) project. Over the past twenty years, he and his colleagues have developed the SEED, RAST, MG-RAST, and ModelSEED genome analysis and bacterial modeling servers that have been used by tens of thousands of users to annotate and analyze more than 250,000 microbial genomes and metagenomic samples.
