Sherrie Wang

Sherrie Wang is an assistant professor in a shared position between the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society. Wang was a Ciriacy-Wantrup Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, hosted by Solomon Hsiang and the Global Policy Lab. She develops machine learning for Earth observation data. Her primary application areas are improving agricultural management and forecasting climate phenomena. She obtained her PhD in computational and mathematical engineering in 2021 from Stanford University, where she was advised by David Lobell.
portrait of Connor Coley

Connor Coley ’19

Connor Coley PhD ’19 is the Henri Slezynger (1957) Career Development Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering (ChemE). He was formally appointed to a shared position between the college in the Faculty of Artificial Intelligence and Decision-Making in EECS and ChemE. Prior to his arrival, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. His research interests focus on how data science and laboratory automation can be used to streamline discovery in the chemical sciences.
