Anthony B. Costa, PhD, an accomplished computational scientist with a highly interdisciplinary background, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at Mount Sinai Health System. Dr. Costa is the Director of the Neurosurgery Simulation Core for the Department of Neurosurgery at the Icahn School of Medicine where he drives the development of novel, high-fidelity virtual-reality neurosurgery simulation and modeling technologies and their applications to training, intra-operative navigation, and patient outcome in complex microsurgery.

Dr. Costa's doctoral and postdoctoral work included study in diverse fields such as fluid dynamics, multivariate statistics and machine learning methods for biomedical image analysis, and statistical and quantum mechanics. He has a strong foundation in the design and implementation of parallel scientific methods on high performance computing systems on varied architectures and across the boundaries of traditionally defined research fields.

Dr. Costa joined the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in 2013 where he was a Computational Scientist in Scientific Computing.
