Dr. Sterling McPherson

Dr. McPherson is Director for Biostatistics and Clinical Trial Design at the Washington State University Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine and Associate Director of Research for Analytics and Discovery at the Providence Medical Research Center. He is also Executive Faculty at the Program of Excellence in Addictions Research (PEAR). Within PEAR, he is the Head and Principal Investigator of the Analytics and Psychopharmacology Laboratory (APPL). He has secured more than $35 million in grants and contracts as PI or Co-I from NIH (eight different institutes/centers) and 14 other agencies and is involved in multiple research projects ranging from basic human toxicology to health economics.

Dr. Mark VanDam

Dr. Mark VanDam is Associate Professor and Director of the Speech & Language Lab in the Department of Speech & Hearing Sciences, Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, Washington State University. He also holds courtesy appointments at Eastern Washington University, Arizona State University, and the Washington Center for Muscle Biology. He has spent over 20 years investigating pathological speech production in at-risk and disordered populations, automatic speech recognition, and complex modeling for real-time biofeedback technology.

Dr. Georgina Lynch

Dr. Georgina Lynch currently works at the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences, Washington State University. Georgina does research in Pediatrics, Allied Health Science and Neuropsychology. Their current project is ‘Pupillary Metric Biomarker Research Program’. The work involves the use of static and hand-held technology to assess the pupillary light reflex in typically developing children and those with ASD with an aim of developing pupillometry metrics to guide screening practices by health care providers. The lab uses eyetracking technology to examine pupillary parameters in ASD related both to reflexive pupil response and pupillary changes associated with cognitive activity.

Dr. Steve James

Dr. James’ research focus includes the interaction between physical stressors (such as sleep related fatigue), law, policy, training and practice relating to operational performance for military and law enforcement personnel. He strives to better understand the dynamics of performance in a wide variety of policing tasks; driving, citizen encounters, crisis intervention, and deadly force encounters. Dr. James uses neurophysiological measurements and simulation technology to evaluate training and performance of military and law enforcement personnel. This research will lead to more effective, and more cost effective, training and greater public safety. Prior to becoming an academic, Dr. James served in the British military as an infantry soldier and officer.

Daniel Furman

Daniel graduated from the University of Idaho with a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics with a focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). He is an expert in AI modeling, data imputation, and Machine Learning. During his academic career, Daniel developed novel clustering algorithms that improve the denoising process in autoencoder imputation. He has built multiple advanced AI and ML solutions for public and private sector companies.

Kim Johnson

Kim Johnson has an established track record as a senior executive, entrepreneur, and Principal Investigator. Early in his career Kim helped create revolutionary video and telecommunications services including the first national digital satellite television service which grew to 2 million customers with 5,000 distributors prior to exit. His healthcare experience includes development of bedside decision support, training and patient engagement products. Kim currently works with multiple local health providers and as a PI on two SBIR grants targeting improved outcomes for addiction related conditions. He has a BA and MBA from the University of Chicago and completed his training in health promotion at the University of Texas School of Public Health in Austin.

Ofer Amram

Dr. Amram, MSc, Ph.D, is an Assistant Professor at Washington State University, Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine. As a spatial epidemiologist, he focuses on the use of geographical information systems to investigate the connection between Human health and the natural and social environment. 

He completed a joint PhD from Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, BC, Canada (Geography Department) and Ben Gurion University, Beer Sheva, Israel (Faculty of Health Sciences). As a spatial epidemiologist, he has focused on the use of geographical information systems and on evidence-based decision making. More specifically, he has conducted in-depth studies of the connection between Human health and the social and natural environments.
