Diya earned her Bachelor's in Molecular Biology from Princeton University and went on to earn her PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California, Berkeley from the lab of John Ngai, where she studied the olfactory epithelium
, a tissue responsible for our sense of smell. She was a graduate and postdoctoral fellow at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science. Current Role:
Diya's training as a graduate student and postdoc continues to inform her current role as a Sr. Informatics Analyst at Genentech, especially the process of collecting, managing, and standardizing data to increase its accessibility to different researchers. She is drawn to this work because she enjoys the logistics of data management, which includes thoughtful planning and partnering with different teams across the company as well as external collaborators. She enjoys her work so much that she is pursuing an MBA at the University of California Berkeley's Haas School of Business to improve the effectiveness of her team’s activities. Outside of work:
Diya draws on her knowledge and experience to shape programming for ADSA’s Career Development Network
as a member of the CDN Steering Committee. In addition to community building, Dr. Das enjoys cooking and collecting kitchen appliances. She likes to unwind by watching TV shows like NCIS and any and all home improvement series.
How to connect with Diya: Check out Diya's profile in the CDN Member Directory
which shares links to her website and LinkedIn and Github profiles. One project she would like to invite others to contribute to is a Python-based script to parse transaction histories for commute reimbursements
. Parsing tables in PDFs is her new nemesis.
