Introduction to Bash + Git

November 19, 2021, 10:00am
This workshop will start by introducing you to navigating your computer’s file system and basic Bash commands to remove the fear of working with the command line and to give you the confidence to use it to increase your productivity. And then working with Git, a powerful tool for keeping track of changes you make to the files in a project.

Alex Bruefach

Discovery Graduate Fellow
Materials Science and Engineering

Alex is a PhD Candidate in materials science and engineering developing image processing and machine learning techniques for extracting information from electron microscopy datasets. Her primary focus is understanding what information is transferred from various feature representations of images. She has extensive experience collaborating across boundaries and is passionate about brainstorming innovative approaches to challenging data science problems!

Sean Perez

Data Science Fellow
Environmental Science, Policy, and Management

Sean is a Ph.D. candidate in Environmental Science, Policy and Management (ESPM). His thesis is centered around the chemical and genetic components that underly chemical defense in arthropods. To answer these questions, he uses a variety of methods from Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry to RNAseq differential expression analysis. To this end, he programs in R, Python, and bash.

Sean is also an aspiring data-science who draws inspiration from Hadley Wickham and Wes McKinney, the creators of the tidyverse and pandas respectively, and tries to follow their tenants of creating

Eileen is currently a first year Information Management and Systems student committed to studying human-centered design for the utility and usability of healthcare systems. She spent the last few years working in genomic research program analysis and management at the National Human Genome Research Institute. Prior to that, Eileen attended Georgetown University where she studied biology and studio art. During this time, she performed research on water contaminants in an analytical chemistry lab as well as research on estrogen mimicking compound effects on Zebrafish in a brain...

Amy Van Scoyoc

Data Science Fellow
Environmental Science, Policy, and Management

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Environmental Science, Policy & Management at Berkeley. As a community ecologist, I use movement data and satellite imagery to disentangle how human land-uses affect wildlife behavior and population dynamics. Before joining the Brashares lab, I managed the Data Analytics & IT Department at Earthwatch Institute, where I led initiatives to engage corporate stakeholders and volunteers in ecology field research. I graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in Ecology.

Pratik Sachdeva, Ph.D.

Postdoc, Researcher
Physics

I'm a Postdoc at the Social Sciences D-Lab. I received my Ph.D. in the Physics department at Berkeley. My research lies in the realm of theoretical/computational neuroscience, which aims to use mathematical and computational tools to better understand how neural systems operate and process information. My projects include using information-theoretic techniques to study how neural variability impacts information processing in neural circuits and investigating the statistical issues that impede the interpretation of parametric models of neural activity.

Beyond research, I'm
