Dr. Kouril collaborates with several Cincinnati Children's divisions on a number of innovative technology-related projects. One notable collaboration is the five-year R01 grant with the Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology (Jennie Noll, PI). The project is monitoring online behavior of abused and non-abused adolescents to look for inappropriate and risky behavior. In addition, Dr. Kouril oversees the Cincinnati Children's Research IT group, which maintains petabyte-size storage in a number of performance tiers including the fastest SSD-based systems used for the most demanding applications, such as research data warehousing, virtual desktop infrastructure and some production servers. His team built out the research disaster recovery infrastructure to accommodate applications that are required from the business continuity perspective. In addition, they have expanded the computational cluster and added cutting-edge technology such as large graphics processing unit capability and high-core density teraFLOPS-speed Intel Phi cards.
PhD: Computer Science, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH, 2006.
