The PCR Team
Julian Whitman (E 2021)
Arthur Yip (E 2021)
Mark Cheung (E 2020)
Mark is a Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department & Center for Neural Basis of Cognition Program. He analyzes how different areas of the brain communicate with each other. He is interested in how communication differs under abnormal conditions – e.g., while patients with brian damage are meditating.
Prior to CMU, Mark graduated from University of Virginia (UVa) also with a Bachelor's in ECE. While at CMU, he has been showing other students how cool science and engineering are in an array of outreach programs such as Madison House High School Tutoring at UVa and ECE Outreach (in addition to PCR).
He also enjoys reading, yoga, and meditation.
Jesse Dunietz (CS 2018)
Jesse is a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department. He teaches computers to understand what we humans mean when we talk about cause and effect.
Originally from New Jersey, Jesse received his bachelor's degree in computer science from MIT. He has taken his computer science skills into a wide variety of contexts, including software companies, charitable organizations, and physics laboratories. He has also taught college programming courses and helped run computer science outreach programs for children.
Jesse believes firmly in the need for scientific and technological literacy in modern society, and is thrilled to be working toward that vision. He is also easily distracted by birds.
