About Enrico Glerean

I am Enrico Glerean, I am a staff scientist at the Aalto School of Science, core member of the Aalto Scientific Computing team where we run the Triton high performance computing cluster, help researchers with their research software, and teach massive online hands-on courses like "Python for Scientific Computing".

I am also a core member of the Aalto Data Agents network. I am an expert in working with personal data in research: I train and support researchers with issue related to GDPR, secure computing workflows for sensitive data, data anonymization.  I am a passionate promoter of open science, transparency, ethics, research integrity, and reproducibility: I train other researchers on these issues and I am a founding member of the Finnish Reproducibility Network

My research domain is cognitive neuroscience, with focus on methods for magnetic resonance imaging of the brain. I am a member of Nordic-RSE and CodeRefinery, two communities in the Nordics devoted to training and helping researchers with scientific software and reproducibility. I am an activist trying to bring a change on issues about equality and inclusivity for women in STEM: I am one of the organizers of the "Making Waves" initiative. I am an elected member of the Aalto Academic Affairs Committee representing researchers and research support personnel. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any matter listed in this short description. I am also active on Twitter @eglerean @SciCompAalto @FinRepro @MWavesAalto.

16th Novartis Neuroscience award

Novartis Finland supports Finnish neuroscience research by giving the Novartis Neuroscience award annually to the author of the best PhD thesis in Finland in the field of brain research. These awards have been made since 1998. The recipient is selected by the board of the Finnish Brain Research Society based on nominations. The winner of the 16th Novartis Neuroscience award is Enrico Glerean (Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering, School of Science, Aalto University) with his thesis "Dynamic similarity of brain activity in humans: from single areas to functional networks". The award was made in the Neuroscience Finland 2016 event on 25 October 2016 in Biomedicum, Helsinki. In his doctoral thesis, Enrico Glerean developed neuroimaging methods for understanding similarities and differences at the individual level in the activation and co-operation of brain areas. Modern brain imaging methods are hoped to assist in the diagnostics of heterogenic autism spectrum disorders.
