Dr. Scansen is originally from Snohomish, Washington and graduated with Bachelor of Science degrees in both Oceanology and Zoology from the University of Washington. He attended veterinary school at Michigan State and graduated in 2004 with a DVM and an MS in molecular virology with high honors. He went on to complete an internship at the Ohio State University in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery and stayed at OSU for a residency in Cardiology. He then completed a fellowship in Interventional Radiology & Endoscopy at the University of Pennsylvania and the Animal Medical Center (New York, NY). Dr. Scansen is a Diplomate of the ACVIM, specialty of Cardiology. He served on the faculty of the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine from 2008 to 2015 and has been an Associate Professor of Cardiology and Service Head of Cardiology & Cardiac Surgery at Colorado State University since November 2015. His research interests include congenital heart disease in animals, advanced cardiac imaging, and minimally-invasive therapeutics.
Jean Peccoud is an expert in systems and synthetic biology. His current scientific interests include the development of linguistic models of DNA sequences, the optimization of DNA fabrication processes, and the development of new instruments to measure the dynamics of gene networks in live cells. Dr Peccoud’s group is leading the development of GenoCAD, an open source web-based application to design synthetic DNA molecules from libraries of standard genetic parts. In the 1990s, Dr Peccoud pioneered the development of stochastic models of genetic networks. Dr Peccoud joined the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute at Virginia Tech in 2006 as Associate Professor. Prior to joining VBI, he was involved in a research program at Du Pont focused on gene and regulatory network discovery, the design of DNA transformation vectors, and the development of methods to analyze the genetic properties of gene networks. Dr Peccoud has been a visiting professor in the department of electrical engineering at the University of Washington, a visiting scholar with Wolfram Research, and the recipient of a NATO Fellowship. Since 2009, he has been an Academic Editor of PLoS ONE. He co-edits the PLoS ONE Synthetic Biology Collection. He is also a member of the editorial board of Trends in Biotechnology.
Before joining CSU-P, I was a Research Faculty member of Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation (CAIT) at Rutgers University. I led the robotics team in research activities of the Long-Term Bridge Performance (LTBP) program funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), U.S. Department of Transportation and the Bridge Resource Program (BRP) funded by the New Jersey Department of Transportation. The product of my group, RABITTM (Robotic Assisted Bridge Inspection Tool), has gained some interests national-wide. My primary roles were in the integration of robotic systems and various NDE technologies, such as acoustic/seismic, electrical, electromagnetic and vision, and development of hardware and software components for various manual and robotic systems. I completed both his MS and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Oklahoma State University.
I earned a B.S. in Meteorology (1989) from Texas A&M University, and a MS (1992) and PhD (1997) in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University. I was briefly a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University (1997). Following that appointment, I was a post-doctoral Fellow at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere at Colorado State University (1997-1999) where he was also employed as a Research Scientist position (1999-2006). I then joined NOAA in 2006 as a Meteorologist in the NESDIS Regional and Mesoscale Meteorology Branch located in Fort Collins, Colorado.
As a student, I concentrated on topics related to tropical climate variability including El Nino/Southern Oscillation, monsoons, tropical cyclones and large-scale Atlantic climatology. The focus of my more recent studies, including his postdoctoral work, has been on observational aspects of hurricane structure and intensity variations and prediction. Much of that work has led to the development of forecast applications that have been transferred to operations at the NESDIS, the National Hurricane Center, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, and tropical cyclone warning centers worldwide. These efforts have led to many awards. In 2004, he received the NOAA David Johnson Award for basic research for improving the understanding of tropical phenomenon and predicting tropical cyclone intensity, accompanied by exemplary transfer of the results into operational products. He has also been awarded Department of Commerce Bronze Medals in 2007, 2010, and 2012 and was a member of a team that received the Colorado Governor's Award for High Impact Research in 2012.
Current research includes the utilization of satellite and other observations to improve scientific understanding, diagnosis and forecasting capabilities of tropical cyclone genesis and structure change, the development and documentation of operational tropical cyclone forecasting techniques, and the transfer of such techniques to the operational setting. Since 1991, I have published more than 70 articles on tropical cyclones, mesoscale meteorology and tropical climatology in the refereed literature.
