    Movie Night: Picture a Scientist

    Picture a scientist chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries - including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists - who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.

      Brown BagThe CDS brownbag (colloquium) takes place in the form of weekly one-hour group meetings and is a forum for discussion and training for MSc students and CDS staff members. 

      HackathonEvery semester all students and CDS members participate in a joint programming hackathon aimed at developing data-analysis skills (data visualization, programming, statistical modeling). Whenever necessary and desired, MSc students can receive prior training (e.g., during the CDS brown-bag colloquium or through additional workshops) to ensure a productive hackathon. For an example of a recent project and associated Hackathon please click here.

      If you have any questions related to CDS events, please contact Laura Wiles.
