Tobias serves as Director of MISCADA. Tobias is a professor in Scientific Computing and High Performance Computing at Durham University. He is working at the Department of Computer Science, where he heads the Scientific Computing research group.

Carlton Baugh

Carlton is Professor in the Department of Physics at Durham University and a member of the Institute for Computational Cosmology. is research interests include modelling the physics of galaxy formation and devising new ways to measure dark energy using the large-scale structure of the Universe. He is also member of the Euclid Consortium, the European Space Agency’s Dark Energy Mission, responsible for producing mock catalogues.

Ian Jermyn

Ian is Professor of Statistics in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University. His research concerns ‘statistical geometry’: both the statistical modelling of geometric structures such as shape, as well as the geometry of statistical space and its generalizations. This work is motivated by and has been extensively applied to large structured data, such as arise, for example, in computer vision.

Frank Krauss

Frank is a professor at the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in the Department of Physics. His research centres around physics at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva. He is a specialist in event generators, Monte Carlo simulation programs that are used by experimenters and theorists to simulate particle collisions in the computer and that are used to analyse the data from the LHC and other similar experiments. Frank is the lead author of the Sherpa event generator.

Daniel Maitre

Daniel is an associate professor at the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in the Department of Physics. His research centers around theoretical predictions for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva. He specialises in Next-to-Leading Order prediction for large multiplicity processes and is particularly interested in developing the software necessary for this type of tasks.
