First Friday Lunch - January 2017

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons.

Shilpa N. Kobren
On Friday, January 6th, 2017, we will be joined by Shilpa N. Kobren, a PhD candidate in the Computer Science department, working in the field of computational biology under Prof. Mona Singh.  Shilpa's thesis focuses on the automatic detection of binding pockets and binding preferences in proteins.  This work can begin to explain the substantial clinical and phenotypic heterogeneity observed across patients wtih the same type of cancer and even the same implicated gene(s)


As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion! Please join us.

He is a pioneer of public prediction through big data. His research focuses on the cerebellum's influence on non-motor processes, cognitive development, and autism. He uses advanced microscopy, fast calcium imaging, and advanced data analytics to probe animal function. In 2004 he founded the Princeton Election Consortium, election.princeton.edu, where he has analyzed political races with unusually high accuracy. He has also co-hosted the popular podcast "Politics and Polls" with Professor Julian Zelizer.

TigerTalk in NYC on Dec 1


 

“Smart Solutions for Smart Cities” will be held on Thursday, December 1 at 6:30 pm at the Princeton Club of New York in midtown Manhattan. Check-in begins at 6:00pm and a networking reception will follow at approximately 7:30pm. Please register at TigerTalks. All Princeton alumni are invited, but seating is limited so register early.

By 2050, over 70 percent of the world’s population is expected to live in cities. Challenges related to population density, water supply, climate change, aging infrastructure, traffic congestion, and natural and man-made hazards (such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and terrorist acts) amplify the risk and threaten the quality of life of urban residents. The next TigerTalks in the City panel discussion will feature Princeton faculty and staff on the topic of “Smart Solutions for Smart Cities”.

Princeton’s Chief Information Officer will lead a discussion on systems stability, privacy, security and implementation in a highly inter-connected

IoT world. Faculty from the Department of Civil and Engineering and the School of Architecture will share research on how to protect cities from natural disasters, make buildings more energy efficient and inviting through new materials and applications, and preserve public spaces in the face of substantially greater population densities.
