Eva Kenny

Eva Kenny
is a Program Manager in the Operations Division.

At the Blue Brain, she supports the scientific and engineering project leads to manage, track, coordinate and report on multiple projects in order for the project to achieve its deliverables.

Before joining Blue Brain, Eva worked for over five years as a project manager in the Netherlands. Most recently for Amsterdam Data Science, promoting joint academic and industry initiatives in the artificial intelligence and data science domains. Prior to that, she worked as a project manager in the Guidelines Office of the European Association of Urology.

Eva holds a Masters and PhD from Newcastle University (UK), where she also completed her Postdoc, all in the neuroimaging (specifically: structural MRI, functional MRI and diffusion tensor imaging) in dementia (specifically: Alzheimer’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies and Parkinson’s disease with dementia) fields.

In her free time she enjoys spending time in the great Swiss outdoors with her Weimaraner dog. She is also a keen runner and has completed over 20 marathons.
