Nolan Gray

President

Computer Science ‘20

I joined CDS because I wanted a community where I could learn and work with some of Cornell's smartest people. I wanted to apply my knowledge to build things that I really care about. Outside of CDS, I enjoy playing club basketball, IM sports, and the occasional round of frolf.

Danny Yang

Finance Chair, Insights Subteam Member

Computer Science ‘20

I joined CDS when the Data Visualization (now Insights) sub-team was started in Spring 2018, because it aligned with my background in data visualization. Last summer I worked at Facebook. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading, and (when I’m back home in California) archery.

I joined the CDS Insights team last spring due to my interests in both design and computer science. Last summer, I interned at a company called LogMeIn within their video conferencing product department. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, eating Indian and Thai food, and improving my chess game.

Education Lead

Information Science ‘21

I joined CDS because it offered me an opportunity to give back to the Cornell community, by means of teaching a class that I once took and that I credit with introducing me to the realm of data science. In my free time, I love beatboxing, listening to hip-hop music, and (re)watching TV shows.

Insights Co-Lead & Recruitment Chair

Computer Science ‘21

I joined CDS after the parallel processing workshop piqued my interest, then transitioned to satisfying my more creative side by helping to start the Insights subteam. Last summer I worked as a research intern at IBM. Outside of school and CDS I like to sleep, swim if I'm feeling it, and complain about the lack of good tacos in Ithaca.
