Angryk, Rafal

Associate Professor
Computer Science
Montana State University - Bozeman

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science degree in 2004 from Tulane University, New Orleans. I am currently employed as an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Montana State University. My current research interests lie in the areas of the organization and computational analysis of very large data repositories (i.e. Databases, Machine Learning and Data Mining). My research has been sponsored by the NGA, NASA, NSF, RightNow Technologies and Intergraph Corporation.

Citizen Scientists help study effects of climate on elk foraging patterns

A group of citizen scientists braved foul weather to help learn about the impact of climate change on elk in the Upper Yellowstone River Basin.

Larson, Robb

Associate Professor
Mechanical and Industrial Engineering
Montana State University - Bozeman

Director of the Montana Wind Applications Center (WAC), one of 11 WAC's located at universities throughout the U.S. with primary funding through the U.S. DOE National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL.) The WAC mission statement includes education, outreach and support for wind energy topics in Montana and nationally. I created and serve as Instructor for the ETME470 Alternative Energy Applications course which includes coverage of a range of renewable energy topics for upper-division students in various Engineering disciplines.

Llovet, Pol

Assoc. Director of Research Computing - Cyberinfrastructure
Research Computing Group / Center for Computational Biology
Montana State University - Bozeman

Pol is a software engineer/administrator/project manager working with the Research Computing Group. He has been working on the problems of Scientific Data Management (many and complex) with the Research Computing Group, but he has also directed his attention to the problems of academic data management as well. He is the lead developer on the Faculty Activity Database, a lead developer with the Yogo project, and a project lead on the Crux project. He also contributes his experience and sunny disposition to the systems administration team of the Research Computing Group.

Sheppard, John

Computer Science
Montana State University - Bozeman

Dr. John Sheppard was the inaugural RightNow Technologies Distinguished Professor in Computer Science at Montana State University and currently holds an appointment as Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at MSU. He is also an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University. In 2007, he was elected as an IEEE Fellow "for contributions to system-level diagnosis and prognosis." Prior to joining Hopkins, he was a Fellow at ARINC Incorporated in Annapolis, MD where he worked for almost 20 years. Dr.

Snider, Ross

Associate Professor
Electrical and Computer Engineering
Montana State University - Bozeman

I'm developing tools (both hardware and software) to help collect and processing data for research activities in both auditory neuroscience and biochemistry (proteomics). I'm interesting in using FPGAs for custom embedded computing applications (data recording and processing). I'm interested in how the human brain processes both visual and auditory information.

I teach computer engineering and signal processing courses in the ECE department.
