James Money, Ph.D.
Applied Visualization Laboratory Lead
Research Areas: Applied Visualization; Data Science; Numerical Differential Equations; Numerical Linear Algebra
Biography: Dr. James H. Money is Applied Visualization Laboratory Lead for Idaho National Laboratory. He has more than 20 years of experience in a variety of fields including immersive visualization in both academic and industry settings. His experience includes leading the first Department of Defense initiative to provide live data sets inside a Cave Automatic Virtual Environment (CAVE), touch displays, and large format video walls from 2007 to 2011. Before coming to INL, he led multiple efforts in the modeling & simulation community to bridge 30-year- old solutions to leading edge products, both in the areas of computations and visualization. He also has worked extensively in geospatial technologies over his career, including seven years working at National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) as well as several other intelligence agencies. Dr. Money earned his doctorate and master’s degrees in mathematics from the University of Kentucky, and a bachelor’s degree in computer science from James Madison University. His prior academic work includes variational methods for image processing, numerical differential equations and linear algebra, and cluster computing. His industrial work includes large-scale data analysis of intelligence for the government and leading clients through transformational change that has resulted in an order of magnitude of costs savings in their projects.
