Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine
Remo Williams is a Research Informatics Programmer within the Translational Imaging Unit and is responsible for developing, testing, and implementing translational informatics software and application solutions as well as re-usable open-source and proprietary software and application products.
Remo works with the Enterprise Informatics Group on contributing to data driven application design around translational science projects. His main focus is on the Children’s Brain Tumor Network (CBTN); an adult-focused project, the University of Pennsylvania’s Neurosurgery Tumor Tissue Bank (NTTB) Data and Biospecimen Inventory system; and related data, specimen, genomic and imaging repository work.
Prior to joining D3b in November of 2020, Remo was part of the research informatics team at CHOP’s Department of Biomedicial and Health Informatics (DBHi) since November of 2015. Before starting at DBHi, Remo worked with high-performance computing relating to neuro-physiological experiments, development in AI and programmatic algorithmic approaches to analysis and applied decisions on spectral data for NASA and the JPL during his tenure at the University of Arizona. His software helped discover the most appropriate place to land a rover on Mars where there was a high likelihood of water.
Remo earned a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado and an MS in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the University of Arizona. He is committed to applying his passion for technology towards helping researchers to most easily and effectively improve the outcomes for children of all ages.
