Sendhil Mullainathan is the Roman Family University Professor of Computation and Behavioral Science at Chicago Booth. His current research uses machine learning to understand complex problems in human behavior, social policy, and especially medicine, where computational techniques have the potential to uncover biomedical insights from large-scale health data. In addition to being a co-PI at the joint Berkeley-UChicago Laboratory for Systems Medicine, Mullainathan is the cofounder of the computational medicine initiative, Nightingale. More here.
Eun-Ah Kim obtained B.S. and M.S. in Physics from Seoul National University, South Korea and PhD from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2005. In 2008, she started her research group at the Cornell University, where she is currently a professor. Dr. Kim’s expertise is in the theory of quantum correlated matter, especially in the subject areas of exotic superconductivty and topological phases. She is known for her breadth and for her synergetic interaction with experimental colleagues. Since 2016, she has been pioneering application of machine learning to the study of correlated quantum matter.
Katie Bouman is a Rosenberg Scholar and Assistant Professor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) and Electrical Engineering at Caltech in Pasadena, California. Her research focuses on computational imaging: designing systems that tightly integrate algorithm and sensor design, making it possible to observe phenomena previously difficult or impossible to measure with traditional approaches. Her group at Caltech combines ideas from signal processing, computer vision, machine learning, and physics to find and exploit hidden signals for both scientific discovery and technological innovation.
Arunachalam Narayanaswamy is a Software Engineer in Google AI, working on applying machine learning to big data problems in physical sciences with particular focus on interpretable models that help lead to scientific discoveries. He obtained his B.Tech. from Indian Institute of Madras, Chennai in 2006. He obtained his M.S. in 2008 and Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Troy, N.Y. in 2011 under Badrinath Roysam working on Image Analysis and Computer Vision algorithms for images in microscopy. He has served as a reviewer for several of computer vision / medical imaging journals like TPAMI, TBME, TMI. Google Scholar.
Barbara E. Engelhardt, an associate professor, joined the Princeton Computer Science Department in 2014 from Duke University, where she had been an assistant professor in Biostatistics and Bioinformatics and Statistical Sciences. She graduated from Stanford University and received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, advised by Professor Michael Jordan. She did postdoctoral research at the University of Chicago, working with Professor Matthew Stephens, and three years at Duke University as an assistant professor. Interspersed among her academic experiences, she spent two years working at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a summer at Google Research, and a year at 23andMe, a DNA ancestry service. Professor Engelhardt received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship, and the Walter M. Fitch Prize from the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution. As a faculty member, she received the NIH NHGRI K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award, a Sloan Faculty Fellowship, and an NSF CAREER Award. Professor Engelhardt’s research interests involve developing statistical models and methods for the analysis of high-dimensional biomedical data, with a goal of understanding the underlying biological mechanisms of complex phenotypes and human disease.
