Professional Experience

Dr. Sottile spent the early part of his career as a Student and Technical Staff Member at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (1999-2007). His research work at LANL focused on high performance computing, verification and validation of multiphysics simulations, and image analysis. After LANL, he was an adjunct faculty member and research associate at the University of Oregon. During that time he taught multiple classes in computer science and data analytics, and worked closely with members of the Institute of Neuroscience on data problems arising in fluorescence microscopy of c. Elegans nematodes. Between 2010 and 2016, he was a lead researcher at Galois, Inc. in Portland, Oregon working in high performance computing, programming languages, and program transformation techniques. In 2015, Dr. Sottile founded Sailfan Research, Inc., a small business focusing on data analytics for image-oriented problems. Since 2015 he has been a member of the WSU Math Dept. Analysis+Data group, studying problems related to network analysis and social systems from a dynamical systems and probabilistic perspective.
