Thomas Caswell
Thomas CaswellLead developer of Matplotlib, Core developer of h5py, and Staff Scientist at Brookhaven National Lab
Trained as a physicist, Caswell shifted his career from research to enabling scientists to apply modern programming and computational tools to their day-to-day research. Caswell has also made small contributions to many of the core projects in the Scientific Python ecosystem. He was named a PSF Fellow in Q2 2022 in recongition of his contribution and leadership across the boarder community. Caswell is currently a staff scientist at NSLS-II at Brookhaven National Lab as a member of the Data Science and Systems Integration program. There he is a founder, developer and core architect of the Bluesky Project, a suite of tools which leverages the scientific Python ecosystem to enable experimental science at the lab-bench scale and facility scale.

Chelle Gentemann, Ph.D.
Chelle Gentemann, Ph.D.Program Scientist Transform to Open Science at NASA
Chelle is a passionate advocate for open science, open source software, and inclusivity. As a physical oceanographer focused on remote sensing, she has worked for over 25 years on retrievals of ocean temperature from space and using that data to understand how the ocean impacts our lives. Her more recent research focuses on interdisciplinary science using cloud computing, open source software algorithm development, air-sea fluxes, biophysical interactions, and upper ocean physical processes. She currently is on an Interagency Personnel Appointment (IPA) appointment to NASA headquarters, and has served on scientific committees, notably as co-chair of a standing committee for the National Academy of Sciences. Chelle has also presented to a federal house committee on NASA's implementation of scientific community priorities.

Paul RomerUniversity Professor at NYU, Co-Recipient of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences
Paul Romer, a University Professor at NYU, was co-recipient of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Economics Sciences. His work lies in the intersection of economics, innovation, technology, and urbanization. The central conclusion is that there are many feasible ways to speed human progress. Before coming to NYU, Paul taught at Stanford, and while there, started Aplia, an education technology company he later sold to Thomson Learning. Prior to Stanford, he taught at UC Berkeley, the University of Chicago, and the University of Rochester. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Doctorate in Economics from the University of Chicago.

Melissa MendonçaSoftware Engineer at Quansight
Melissa is an applied mathematician and former university professor who fell in love with open source communities. She has been involved with the Python and PyData communities for some time, with a focus on outreach, education and DEI. She works at Quansight as a Senior Developer Experience Engineer, is a maintainer for NumPy and SciPy, and believes in the power of contributions beyond code.

What to Expect

PyData NYC 2022 is a 3-day event for the international community of users and developers of data analysis tools to share ideas and learn from each other. The global PyData network promotes discussion of best practices, new approaches, and emerging technologies for data management, processing, analytics, and visualization. PyData communities approach data science using many languages, including (but not limited to) Python, Julia, and R.

Over the span of 3 days, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in workshops, attend live keynote sessions and talks, as well as get to know fellow members of the PyData Community. The event will be in-person at the Microsoft Conference Center, Times Square. (11 Times Sq, New York, NY 10036) Wednesday and Thursday, November 9-10 are talk days, and Friday, November 11th is a tutorial day.
