Naruemon Pratanwanich - PhD Student

Naruemon is a PhD student in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Group of the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Dr. Pietro Lio', and a member of Darwin College. She was granted the Royal Thai Government for her PhD studies. In 2009, she received her first degree of BEng in Computer Engineering from Chulalongkorn University, Thailand, with the thesis entitled “Thai Text-to-Speech of English Graphemes”. The objective was to serve as a plug-in for text to speech program, a computer-aided application for the blind. This is her starting point to change her research direction to serve the purpose of health science. She decided to enroll the MSc of Biomedical Engineering at Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. Graduated in 2011, she conducted the thesis under the title of “Association between LINE-1 Characteristics and Gene Expression in Cancers Using Data Mining Techniques”. Currently, her research interests have focused on machine learning techniques, including Bayesian approaches and latent models, to analyse multiple kinds of –omics data e.g. gene expression data, protein-protein interaction, and biological pathways, with the aim of personalised medicine and drug repositioning where new indications are proposed for the existing drugs.

Zhen Bai - PhD Student

I’m a research student in the Graphics & Interaction Group. I am interested in exploring how Augmented Reality technologies can facilitate the development of symbolic thinking and social interaction of young children with and without special needs. I became a member of women@CL in my second year in the Computer Laboratory and have been enjoying organizing and participating in various events ever since. I find those events to be very helpful for female students at different stages of their study in both academic and social aspects.

Chloë Brown - PhD Student

I was an undergraduate at the Computer Laboratory studying the Computer Science Tripos from 2008-2011, and now I am a PhD student in the NetOS group. As an undergraduate I found the women@CL Big Sister Little Sister events to be a brilliant antidote to the uncertainty it might be easy to feel as a girl starting university on a very male-dominated course, and I really hope that other 'little sisters' continue to find the same.

Vaiva Imbrasaitė - PhD Student

I am a third year PhD student in the Rainbow group working on automatic emotion recognition in music. I have also done my undergraduate degree here, in Cambridge so it is my 6th year in the Computer Lab. That is also how long I have been involved with or attending women@CL events - it is a great way to meet like-minded women!

Assel Zhiyenbayeva - Undergraduate Student

I am a third-year Computer Science student at Fitzwilliam College, originally from Kazakhstan. I have been involved with women@CL from last year and have had a great experience, every event has a friendly atmosphere and I’ve really enjoyed every moment.
