Dr. Carneiro leads the computational technology development team at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. He has
contributed to major advances in DNA sequencing analysis with compression algorithms,
statistical methods, heterogeneous compute optimizations and a systematic approach to the
institute's computational development, distribution and support. His team is also
responsible for the evaluation of new sequencing technologies and has provided
several methods and tools to handle new data types in the world of next generation
sequencing through the Genome
Analysis Toolkit (GATK).
Dr. Carneiro joined the Broad Institute in
December 2010 after completing a Ph.D. in computational biology from Harvard University. He holds two championships in the International Collegiate Programming Contest organized by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) in 2002 and 2003,
respectively, and a Programming
Excellence Award from the ACM Upsilon Pi
Epsilon Society in 2003.
In his previous life, he was a video game developer and has led the development of
the world's first massive online location based multiplayer game: Alien Revolt.
