The Cambridge Team
Janet leads the UK user experience team at MathWorks where her team's mission is to create intuitive products for scientists and engineers based on a strong understanding of the user needs and technology. She holds a MEng of Computing from Imperial College London, with over 18 years' experience in the software industry. Janet teaches deep learning hands-on workshops at conferences such as Hopperx1 London. She also presents and facilitates breakout sessions at the MathWorks Advisory Board conferences in the UK and US where she collaborates with scientists and engineers from academia, medical, automotive, and other industries. Janet hosts Women in Tech ignite talk events in the UK in a regular basis, bringing inspiring and talented women working in science and engineering together.
Maria J. Duarte Rosa
Maria studied Physics in Lisbon, Portugal, before moving to London, UK, to do a PhD in Neuroimaging at UCL. She discovered Machine Learning while she was doing her PhD and has since been a great enthusiast of this area. After her PhD, she worked for several years as a post-doc using Machine Learning to analyse brain imaging data with a focus on better diagnosing psychiatric disorders. After almost 10 years in London, it was time for a new challenge and to learn more about new areas of Machine Learning, such as Deep Learning. She then moved to Cambridge and started working for MathWorks as a Deep Learning Advanced Support Engineer. She loves travelling, running, reading, data science competitions and volunteering in community projects whenever there is time.
Julia studied Mechatronics & Microsystem Engineering at the Applied Science University in Heilbronn, Germany, where she promoted the presence of girls/women in engineering at the Girls'Day events. She has a vast industrial experience working as a Technical Project Manager. She completed her Masters Degree in Renewable Energy at the University of Dundee and received a PhD in Offshore Wind Energy from the University of Hull. After a couple of postdoctoral positions at the University of Reading and Strathclyde University, she is now working at MathWorks, Cambridge as a Deep Learning Academic Liaison Manager. Julia is a lifelong learner and firmly believes that education and inclusion transforms lives. She also loves learning new languages, travelling, playing volleyball and rock climbing.
