Meet Our Postdocs

The prestigious postdoctoral program is central to FDS and embodies the kind of exciting cross-disciplinary work we aim to facilitate. These postdoc fellows are focused on research and problem-solving in partnership with faculty across Yale.

“Almost every major advance in data science started with a scholar in another field who had a problem they could not solve. For a good research project to happen, you need people to meet.”

Dan Spielman, Director, FDS
