Birds of a Feather discussion: Educational Resources for Computational Skills and Research

Modified: April 11, 2017
Student lead discussion featuring:
  • Sarah D'Angelo, Ph.D. student, Technology and Social Behavior
  • Daniel Cook, Ph.D. student, Interdisciplinary Program in Biological Sciences
  • Joao Moreira, PhD student, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering in McCormick
  • Denise Alberta Tarnowski, PhD student, Microbiology-Immunology Department (Driskill Graduate Program) in Feinberg School of Medicine 

There is a pressing demand for programming and computing skills across all fields due to the growth of data acquisition and creation. Many grad students and faculty are finding that they need these skills for their graduate course work, research and future job opportunities. We may not always be prepared to implement computational component in our research areas. The discussion in this session will focus on how graduate students can develop the digital skills i.e. programming, data analysis, using computing resources, visualization etc. In addition, we will discuss the resources we use to learn these skills and organizing study groups to help each other in gaining computational experience.

This event is part of Computational Research Day on April 18 and will take place from 3:45 - 4:30 PM.
