Dr. Aijun An is the Principle Investigator of the BRAIN Alliance. She is a professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at York University. Her areas of interest are data mining, machine learning, information retrieval, and artificial intelligence.

As the original Principal Investigator of the BRAIN Alliance, Nick Cercone led the charge in creating and nurturing the network since 2013. He put hundreds of hours into the paper work required to submit, revise, and resubmit the network grant proposals. Thanks to his insatiable work ethic, and the help of his friend and colleague Aijun An, the BRAIN Alliance has secured the resources to fund over 80 researchers across 21 projects. We take this opportunity to give our deepest thanks to Nick for being an amazing friend, colleague, and leader.
