Congratulations to Gigi!

Congratulations to Yiran (Gigi) Wang for winning 1st place at the Future Leaders symposium for her “outstanding soundbite presentation” at NC State University.

Gigi’s winning strategy was to use a pie- baking analogy to make our Bayesian optimization code more accessible to her audience. Gigi is part of the BayesOpt team developing a code base called PAL 2.0 (Physical Analytics pipeLine).

This is a selective research symposium organized by the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at North Carolina State University. The 1-day symposium is a platform for the “finest and brightest undergraduate researchers in the U.S. to present their work and be recognized for their achievements and potential as future leaders in chemical and biomolecular engineering.”
