About the speakers
Alexis Boyer is the doctoral student advisor at Northeastern. After completing her PhD in Biblical History at Boston University, she realized that advising students and making space for them to envision their own pathways forward were what drew her into the field of higher education. Career advising provides a great opportunity to apply her teaching, coaching, and writing skills to an ever-changing set of real-world challenges. Her top strengths are individualization, relator, and learner. Her life design includes lots of cooking and baking, reading, yoga, long walks with her dog, and spending time with her friends and family.
Alexander Gates is an Associate Research Scientist at the Center for Complex Network Research (CCNR). He currently works with professor Barabási on the science of success and the dynamics of academic careers. Before arriving at Northeastern, Alex received a joint PhD degree in Informatics (complex systems track) and Cognitive Science from Indiana University, Bloomington, an MSc from King's College London in complex systems modeling and a BA in mathematics from Cornell University. His academic research fuses mathematical and computational methods to study complex systems in biology, neuroscience, and sociology. Some of his recent contributions include a systematic quantification of control in gene regulatory networks, a dynamical protocell model for autopoiesis, and a novel framework for comparing overlapping and hierarchical clusters and communities.
Nicole Samay is Senior Graphic Designer in the Network Science Institute. She studied at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, earning Bachelors of Science in design and business management. Her role in the Institute involves working with researchers to develop and adapt data visualizations and communications within an interdisciplinary, scientific environment, with a particular focus on information design.
