Pratik Sachdeva, Ph.D.

Data/Research Scientist, Senior Consultant, and Senior Instructor

I am staff 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

Nicolas Nunez-Sahr


I lived in Santiago, Chile until I graduated from high school, and then moved to the US for undergrad at Stanford, where I obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the Statistics Department. I then worked as a Data Scientist in an NLP startup that was based in Bend, OR, which analyzed news articles. I love playing soccer, volleyball, table tennis, flute, guitar, latin music, and meeting new people. I want to get better at mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, chess and computer vision. I find nature astounding, and love finding sources of inspiration.

Gaby May Lagunes


Hello! I’m Gaby (she/her). I am PhD student at the ESPM department, I hold a masters in Data Science and Information from the Berkeley ISchool and I have 5+ years of industrial experience in different data roles. Before that I got a masters in Engineering for International Development and an undergraduate degree in Physics from University College London. And somewhere between all that I got married, survived the pandemic, and had two awesome boys. I’m very excited to help you use data to enhance your work and your experience here at Berkeley!

Bash + Git: Introduction

May 2, 2024, 2:00pm
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.
