Casey Dunn to receive NSF Waterman Award
Date:3/16/2011

states that have less extensive scientific infrastructures and have historically received fewer federal research dollars, like Rhode Island

Brown University is using this RII C2 funding to enhance access to a high-performance computing and their bioinformatics facility that supports life science research. The award will also provide high-speed connections from Brown University campus sites to the University of Rhode Island and to collaborators at the state's nine primarily undergraduate institutions.

"The genome sequencers are down at Ship Street, and the supercomputer is here on [the Brown University] campus," said Dunn. "The enhanced connectivity supported by NSF's EPSCoR is critical for moving the data from acquisition to analysis."

In addition to conducting his research, Dunn has created a popular website that reveals the unexpected world of deep-sea animals through innovative animation, podcasts and text. The site has been featured by various media, including National Public Radio's Science Friday website. He also has just co-authored a book to teach scientists how to work with large datasets, entitled "Practical Computing for Biologists," published by Sinauer Associates, Inc.

The Waterman Award will be presented to Dunn at a dinner ceremony held in Washington, D.C., on May 10. He will also deliver a lecture at NSF on May 9.
