Sylvain V. Costes0000-0002-8542-2389
Sylvain V. Costes was trained as a Nuclear Engineer, specialized in medical and health physics, and he studied radiation biology in the Nuclear Engineering Department of UC Berkeley. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1999 and then joined the Mathematics Department of UC Berkeley as a Postdoctoral Fellow, where he developed mathematical formalisms predicting gene deletions observed after exposure to ionizing radiation. As a Staff Scientist at the Image Analysis and Confocal Laboratory of the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, he expanded his research to include high throughput imaging, live cell imaging, and biochemical models describing the interaction and movement of fluorescent proteins. He joined the Berkeley Lab in April 2004, and he is now in charge of the computer modeling effort for a NASA Specialized Center of Research looking at the risk of space radiation on human breast in collaboration with NYU Medical School. He also supervises a bioinformatics lab for multidimensional microscope image analysis, agent-based modeling, and genomic analysis.
