About our Guest Alumni
Jack Etheredge is a PhD data scientist with a background in biology & bioinformatics. He's looking for data science opportunities that focus on developing & utilizing artificial intelligence.
He is a scientist with 10 years of experience in developmental biology. His goal is to work as a data scientist for a company addressing human health problems through translational science. Of particular interest to him are issues involving regenerative medicine & autoimmunity. He has experience with big data analysis, RNA-Seq transcriptomics, transgenic model organisms (predominantly mouse & fly), & working with stem cells in vivo. His PhD work was with Andrea Brand & Jim Truman & focused on the generation of neuronal diversity from stem cell lineages in Drosophila.
Summer is excited about understanding people, business & our society by leveraging unstructured data & algorithms. She is currently working as a Data Analyst at KLS Diversified Asset Management, working on predictive modeling, data engineering & visualization.
Prior to Metis, Summer worked as a Research Data Analyst at Energy Aspects, where she analyzed global oil market & turned supply, demand & trade flow data into investment strategies. For her final project, Summer built a CNN based fashion item recommender & visually displayed how the item would look on the user with OpenCV. Outside the world of data science, Summer is also a Judo brown belt & a street violin artist.
