ISCAS AWARD Winners 2016 : Thomas Vaughan

My name is Thomas Vaughan, and I am a doctoral student in Computer Science from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. I work on the translation of software and hardware to clinical practice. I am currently working with researchers at Kingston General Hospital to improve multiple aspects of breast brachytherapy, including the quality of needle implant insertions, and catheter path tracking. I hope to promote reproducible research in computer algorithms by publishing source code and data wherever possible. I believe this approach will make published computer algorithms more accessible because other researchers would not need to invest time in re-implementing and testing algorithms, and there is no risk that there will be mistakes during the reimplementation phase. I think that ISCAS could help by encouraging published researchers to share source code and data, and that this will enhance the overall quality and reproducibility of science in the field.
