Scaling a biotech research platform requires managing organization complexity - teams, functions, projects - rather than just the traditional volume, velocity, and variety. By examining the processes and experiments that drive the platform, you can focus your work where it matters the most by finding the ideal balance for each type of experiment along with a number of common trade-offs.
In this episode
VP, Data Science and Data Engineering, Dewpoint Therapeutics
Jesse Johnson is head of Data Science and Data Engineering at Dewpoint Therapeutics, an R&D-stage biotech startup. His interest in exploring complex systems, understanding what makes them tick, then using this understanding to improve and scale them led him from academic mathematics, into software engineering (Google, Verily Life Sciences), and then to Biotech (Sanofi, Cellarity, Dewpoint). His goal is to identify ways to scale biotech research through better software and organizational design.
Demetrios is one of the main organizers of the MLOps community and currently resides in a small town outside Frankfurt, Germany. He is an avid traveller who taught English as a second language to see the world and learn about new cultures. Demetrios fell into the Machine Learning Operations world, and since, has interviewed the leading names around MLOps, Data Science, and ML. Since diving into the nitty-gritty of Machine Learning Operations he felt a strong calling to explore the ethical issues surrounding ML. When he is not conducting interviews you can find him making stone stacking with his daughter in the woods or playing the ukulele by the campfire.
Vishnu Rachakonda is the operations lead for the MLOps Community and co-hosts the MLOps Coffee Sessions podcast. He is a machine learning engineer at Tesseract Health, a 4Catalyzer company focused on retinal imaging. In this role, he builds machine learning models for clinical workflow augmentation and diagnostics in on-device and cloud use cases. Since studying bioengineering at Penn, Vishnu has been actively working in the fields of computational biomedicine and MLOps. In his spare time, Vishnu enjoys suspending all logic to watch Indian action movies, playing chess, and writing.
