Natalia Bilenko


I am queer and I am a machine learning scientist/engineer. //

I started my scientific career as a neuroscientist, and during my PhD at UC Berkeley, I studied how vision and speech are represented in the brain using machine learning techniques. Now, I design algorithms and build software for diagnosing heart disease at a startup in San Francisco. My other interests include human-centered design, scientific art, and data visualization. I am passionate about working to make STEM a more inclusive place. You can find me on Twitter @unthevert.
