We are the data science club at Weill Cornell Medicine, made up and led by graduate students, post-docs, and other members of the WMC and Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center community.
Bonnie Quach is a PhD Candidate in the Pharmacology program at Weill Cornell Graduate School. She is working to build an optically-controlled drug screening platform using iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes. She enjoys using data science to automate her data analysis and create pretty graphs that are more intuitive for audience members outside of the cardiac community to understand her data that she spends so much time generating.
Chaya Stern is a PhD candidate in the Chodera lab at Memorial Sloan Kettering. She is working on improving the physical models of molecules used in simulations of proteins and drug like molecules and loves the statistical modeling aspect of her research. In her free time she enjoys hiking, painting and spending time with her kids.
She is currently a PhD student in the Pharmacology department at Weill Cornell and has been a member of the Gross Lab since late 2013. Her thesis project focuses on applying metabolomics to the study of neural tube defects, one of the most common types of birth defects.
Radhika is a PhD candidate in Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology program at the Weill Cornell Graduate School. She is currently working in the Shuman Lab at MSKCC. Her research interests are to study the role of proteins involved in RNA processing in yeast. Also, she is pursuing her passion for numbers by learning programming in Python and using statistical analysis tools to derive meaningful information from open data sources.
