Data Driven Discovery
Speaker: Prof. Santiago Lombeyda Caltech
Short Bio: Santiago Lombeyda is a Senior Computational Scientist for the Center for Data-Driven Discovery at Caltech. His continuous focus has been on data visualization, in collaboration with a wide range of research groups across Caltech and JPL, ranging from biologists to geophysicist and astrophysicists, tackling projects in gene expression dynamics, solid and fluid mechanics, material properties, computational science, and machine learning just to name a few. His work centers around the generation of clean and efficient novel solutions that aid researchers in understanding their data, as applied to custom software, web based technologies, virtual reality, and even print and general media creation. He is one of four mentors for the Data to Discovery program between Caltech, JPL, and Art Center. He is also faculty in Interaction Design at the Art Center College Design.
