Athanas' unique application of the intersection of his skills and experience as a scientist, data analyst, software architect, developer, IT architect, and project and team manager has provided measurable benefit to many leading life science companies. Formerly Director of Scientific Consulting at Blackstone Computing, Athanas led a highly reputable team of scientists and developers focused upon enabling large-scale vendor-neutral scientific computing solutions. He is the inventor (patent pending) of unique scalable data balancing algorithms that have provided core IP to Blackstone software products. As a Bioinformaticist at Cereon Genomics, he collaborated in the transcriptional profiling team as well as created software infrastructures for high-throughput analysis including a scalable workflow engine based upon mobile agent technologies. Previous to Cereon, Athanas was a Research Scientist at Cornell Universityıs Wilson Synchrotron Laboratory exploring four-quark bound states produced in photon-photon interactions.
