Dr. Shannon Holloway

Chief Programmer & Software Integration

Shannon received her Ph.D. in Theoretical Nuclear Physics from the University of Illinois, Urbana- Champaign in 2004. She is skilled at the design and delivery of sophisticated software solutions to complex mathematical models arising in scientific research. With over 10 years of experience, Shannon specializes in developing, debugging, validating, and modifying highly complex FORTRAN code.

Throughout her career, she developed numerous software implementations of modern scientific theories in the fields of nuclear physics and statistics, many of which are publicly available. Shannon’s experience spans the entire development process: scientific research, including problem identification and theory development; software development from planning to deployment; and user education through formats ranging from lectures to web-based tutorials.

She has expert level experience in FORTRAN and R, a statistical computing environment, as well as experience in C/C++, modern numerical computing environments (e.g., MATLAB and Mathematica), as well as most modern documentation and presentation environments (e.g., LaTex, Word, Publisher, HTML).
