Huangqingbo (Paul) Sun, a member of the first graduating class of our M.S. in Automated Science program, has published his first journal paper in the leading computational biology journal, Bioinformatics. His work with Dr. Murphy developed a new method for matrix completion, an important technique often using in the active learning methods that drive automated science applications. It deals with a specific type of matrix completion in which the results of experiments are phenotypes (or categorical variables). Paul demonstrated that the new method significantly outperforms previously described methods. Paul is remaining at Carnegie Mellon as a Ph.D. student in the Carnegie Mellon-University of Pittsburgh Ph.D....
Prospective students often ask us: ‘Where can I get a job with a degree in Automated Science?’ We can now provide definitive answers! Some members of the class of 2021 will go on to Ph.D. programs, including: Computational Biology(CMU-Pitt) Bioengineering (UIUC) Biomedical Sciences (UT Southwestern Medical Center) Experimental Medicine (McGill) The rest will be going to industry. Specific companies include: Automation Engineer at Twist Bioscience Bioinformatics Analyst at Geisinger Bioinformatics Engineer at Strata Oncology Intuitive Surgical Scientific Developer at Emerald Cloud Lab Assistant Product Manager at Bayer Pharmaceuticals
More evidence of the value of our automated science M.S. program came this week from an article on robotics trends that extensively quotes Dr. Murphy, MSAS program director.
We are committed to increasing the diversity of our students through providing fellowships to join our program. Links for the admissions website and the fellowship application are available on the Admissions page.
Gil Eapen’s “Scientific Sense” podcast talks with the world’s leading scientists and economists about their research and emerging ideas in a variety of domains. Dr. Murphy was recently interviewed and talked about Biomedical Engineering and Machine Learning at Carnegie Mellon University.
Dr. Murphy was recently interviewed as part of an episode of Laboratory automation in the Seeker video magazine “Focal Point”. Dr. Murphy’s comments start at 3:26.
