There's a lot going on at SciPy - don't miss anything!
Recorded SciPy talks will be released each evening throughout the week. We will gather together each day on Crowdcast for live tutorials in the morning, a live keynote or plenary session and then Q&A and moderated discussion for each of our tracks and mini-symposia. We rounded out the week with birds of a feather gatherings, lightning talks and networking events. The week concludes with two days or remote developer sprints.
Anne Carpenter, PhD
Dr. Carpenter is an Institute Scientist and Merkin Fellow at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. Her research group develops algorithms and strategies for large-scale experiments involving images. The team’s open-source CellProfiler software is used by thousands of biologists worldwide (www.cellprofiler.org). Carpenter is a pioneer in image-based profiling, the extraction of rich, unbiased information from images for a number of important applications in drug discovery and functional genomics. Carpenter completed her postdoctoral fellowship at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research and MIT’s Computer Sciences/Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). Her PhD is in cell biology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Carpenter has been named an NSF CAREER awardee, an NIH MIRA awardee, a Massachusetts Academy of Sciences fellow (its youngest at the time), a Genome Technology “Rising Young Investigator”, and is listed in Deep Knowledge Analytics’ top-100 AI Leaders in Drug Discovery and Advanced Healthcare.

Andrew Chael, PhD
Dr. Andrew Chael is a NASA Hubble Fellowship Program (NHFP) Einstein Fellow at the Princeton University Center for Theoretical Science. He is a member of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration.
Andrew studies the extreme environments just outside the event horizons of supermassive black holes, particularly in the galactic center Sgr A* and M87. He uses supercomputer simulations to study the flow of plasma as it falls into the black hole and is launched outward in relativistic jets. He also develop new approaches for testing theoretical predictions with new methods of imaging these black holes with the EHT.
Andrew grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received a BA in Physics with a secondary concentration in Medieval studies from Carleton College in 2013, and earned a Ph.D. in Physics from Harvard University in 2019. At Harvard, Andrew worked at the Black Hole Initiative.
Andrew is a proud member of the Astronomy and Astrophysics Outlist of LGBTQIA+ members of the astronomical community.
