Embracing the Crooked Path
  • Cheryl Dartt, Director of Analytics, Facebook,
    Speaker's Bio:
    Dr. Cheryl Dartt's education began at the University of Calgary where she attained a Bachelor's degree in Chemical & Petroleum Engineering. Dr. Dartt completed her PhD at Caltech as the first student graduating from Professor Kostas Giapis's group, where she studied two-dimensional photonic crystals. After obtaining her PhD, she decided to pursue a career in industry starting first at McKinsey & Company, a global management consulting firm. After four years at McKinsey as an associate and then an engagement manager Dr. Dartt missed the joy of building and returned to technology. She first joined an Idealab start-up company called Overture, which was acquired by Yahoo!, where she worked for eight years as a Senior Director. She then joined Microsoft and worked for four years as the lead for a Product Management team. Currently, Dr. Dartt is the Director of Analytics for the Ads & Business Platform team at Facebook, where she manages a team of Data Scientists and Data Engineers who use modeling, experimentation, analysis, and data to build the best products to connect businesses and people.

Development and Applications of New Synthetic Strategies for Polymer Science
  • Brett Fors, Assistant Professor, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Cornell University,
    Speaker's Bio:
    Brett P. Fors was born in Polson, Montana and carried out his undergraduate studies in chemistry at Montana State University (B.S., 2006). He went on to do his Ph.D. (2011) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Professor Stephen L. Buchwald. After his doctoral studies he became an Elings Fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara working with Professor Craig J. Hawker. In 2014 he joined the faculty at Cornell University and is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology.

Teaching Old Active Sites New Tricks
  • Justin Notestein, Associate Professor, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Northwestern University,
    Speaker's Bio:
    Prof. Justin Notestein received his BSE at Princeton University in 2001 and his PhD at the University of California Berkeley in 2006, both in Chemical Engineering. Since 2007, he has been a member of the Center for Catalysis and Surface Science and the department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, where he now has the rank of Professor. Research in Prof. Notestein's group focuses on the development of new hybrid, oxide, and nanostructured catalysts and adsorbents for a number of transformations relevant to sustainable energy, selective oxidation, and improving industrial chemical processes. Special attention is on developing full synthesis-structure-function relationships for improving the process of new catalyst development.
