Howdy guys!
My name is Stanley Bishop, and I’m a mathematician who works as a machine learning scientist.

I have operated an incubator in Venice Beach for about 10 years that works with early stage data science companies, and in recent years have become passionate about supporting projects in the bioinformatics/ML space including DeepChem.

Here is a flavor of my interests:

… and would also say that I’m a major GPU-gear head… love making clusters purrrrrrrrr, and excited to get to know everyone for another amazing season of GSOC :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Hi everyone! I’m Nathan, and while I’m not formally mentoring GSoC this summer (due to an uncertain schedule), I was a DeepChem mentor last summer and I am happy to contribute however I can!

I’m currently a postdoc at MIT working on accelerating drug discovery and materials design with deep learning.

I’m particularly interested in Improving Equivariant Support and Antibodies, so if you’re working on either of those GSoC projects feel free to reach out at ncfrey@mit.edu
