Vice President - Research

Dr. Steven Cavanaugh has over fifteen years of experience in scientific and technology research projects. Early projects included prototyping video conference software using JAVA and feasibility studies of the interoperability of JAVA and LDAP for EXE Technologies. While completing a BS in Physics, Computer Science, and Math at Rutgers University (class of 2005), he performed feasibility studies over a three year period of particle detectors fabricated from chemical vapor deposition synthetic diamonds for use in the Large Hadron Collider experiments at CERN. Later graduate work at Harvard University allowed for an opportunity to briefly continue work on the ATLAS experiment at CERN, where efforts to prepare muon detectors for installation saw a threefold increase in efficiency under his guidance. Remaining graduate studies were carried out on the MINOS experiment, which was designed to measure properties of the neutrino particle. His contributions to this effort saw a number of advances including a three dimensional event reconstruction algorithm, code efficiency improvements, and efficiency improvements in distributed computing efforts. Work on this project included the management and configuration of a distributed computing system with thousands of nodes. Algorithms developed by him, including ones using artificial neural networks, were run on this system for the purpose of characterizing and searching for single many-parameter events within multimillion event datasets. He received his MA in 2006 and his PhD in Particle Physics in 2010, both from Harvard University.

Dr. Cavanaugh's research interests include distributed computing, improving algorithmic efficiencies, networking protocols, and cloud computing.
