Originally a Seattleite, I joined Broad last year as a graduate student in the Imaging Platform (a.k.a. Anne Carpenter’s lab, a.k.a. the CellProfiler group) coming from MIT’s Department of Chemical Engineering. In my research, I apply deep learning techniques to cell classification in microscopy images.
I have experience creating and organizing Broad events as Meetings and Events Officer, in particular last term’s “Facing Forward with Eric Lander” seminar and the scikit-learn workshop with Eric Ma. Besides Broad, I have also been involved in Graduate Women at MIT (GWAMIT) as event lead for their Empowerment Conference and main organizer of their Orientation Welcome.
It’s important to me to set up events that are directly relevant to the trainee community and are unique to Broadies. I would like to leverage our network by inviting more leaders to participate in the Facing Forward series, connecting with more contacts in academia and industry for career development events, providing more hands-on workshops, and continuing with the career and social developments events already running. Of course, trainees themselves often have the best ideas, and I want to provide a platform where all members of the trainee community can easily contribute their thoughts. I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the events!
