David Lary

University of Texas, Dallas

Prof. David Lary received a First Class Double Honors B.Sc. in Physics and Chemistry from King’s College London (1987) with the Sambrooke Exhibition Prize in Natural Science, and a Ph.D. in Photochemical Computer Modeling of Atmospheric Chemistry from the University of Cambridge, Churchill College (1991). The thread running through all the research is the use of data driven insights using observation and automation to facilitate discovery. A key part of this is the analysis of massive data sets (BigData) using machine learning and high performance computing. David held positions at Cambridge University from 1991-2001, including being a faculty member and receiving a Royal Society University Research Fellowship. The Royal Society is the world’s oldest scientific academy founded in 1660. In 1998 David was awarded the first Alon Fellowship in the Department of Geophysics and Planetary Space Science at the University of Tel-Aviv. In 2000 the chief scientific adviser to the British Prime Minister and Head of the British Office of Science and Technology, Professor Sir David King, recommended David to be appointed as a Cambridge University lecturer in Chemical Informatics in the world’s first department of Chemical Informatics. In 2001 David was invited to join NASA for his work on data assimilation as the first distinguished Goddard fellow in Earth Science and stayed at NASA till 2010, receiving six NASA awards for his research and technology development. While at NASA he worked in several offices including the Data Assimilation Office (now the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office), the Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics Branch, the Science Integration and Visualization Office, and the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center. In 2010 David joined the Hanson Center for Space Science at the University of Texas at Dallas where he has focused on Big Data and Machine Learning from remote sensing in service of society using satellites, smart cities, the internet of things, remote control aerial vehicles and machine learning. He is about to deploy a network of airborne allergen sensors across Chattanooga, TN, for a smart city asthma and allergy early warning system. He also has a position in the Veterans Administration North Texas Health Care System for Big Data, Machine Learning and Health Informatics, and is adjunct professor in the University of Texas at Dallas Department of Electrical Engineering, Baylor University, Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research, and the School of Public Health, University of North Texas Health Science Center. David is a Scholar of The Institute for Integrative Health and working group Co-Chair of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Working Group on Health and founding director of the The Multi-Scale Integrated Intelligent Interactive Sensing Center (MINTS) at the University of Texas at Dallas.

David founded two companies, Machine Data Learning and Data Driven Decisions. Machine Data Learning LLC holds the IP for global health related data products. Data Driven Decisions LLC is a consulting company founded to assist Warren Buffet’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corporation (BNSF) with predictive data analytics for train track safety.
