Rebecca Barter is a statistician, data scientist, educator, and communicator who has a dual passion for empowering others by teaching critical thinking and technical skills for data science, and for uncovering the hidden patterns and stories that live inside complex datasets (primarily related to healthcare and medicine). Barter is working on making healthcare data more accessible, developing data science curriculum, and teaching data science to clinical researchers.
Fatma Deniz is interested in how sensory information is encoded in the brain and uses machine learning approaches to fit computational models to large-scale brain data acquired using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Fatma works at the intersection between computer science, linguistics, music, and neuroscience. Her current focus is on the cross-modal representation of language in the human brain.
Jasmine Norida's lab studies the physics of how organisms interact with (heterogeneous, dynamic) natural environments, and how these interactions shape organismal form and behavior. The lab asks questions that sit at the intersection of behavior, biophysics, and evolution, and uses both theoretical and experimental tools to work with a wide range of organismal systems.
Andreas Zoglauer works at UC Berkeley's Space Sciences Laboratory on COSI, the Compton Spectrometer and Imager, a NASA satellite to be launched in 2027. He is COSI's project scientist and leads the development of its science data operations center.
