Dani Ushizima is a Staff Scientist at LBNL and a Data Scientist Fellow at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS). During her PhD in Computer Vision at the University of Sao Paulo and UC Santa Barbara, she designed cell analysis and classification algorithms, targeting cell screening. During the last decade at LBNL, her research in image analysis and pattern recognition has impacted a broad array of scientific investigation that depends on experimental data (signal and/or images). In 2015, Dani received the U.S. Department of Energy Early Career Award to focus on pattern recognition applied to diverse scientific domains - images range from biomedical to new materials science samples. She has also led the Image Processing team for the Center for Advanced Mathematics for Energy Related Applications (CAMERA).
