Makanjuola Ogunleye

Makanjuola is a 2nd-year Computer Science Ph.D. Student at Virginia Tech, and a member of the Sanghani Center for Artificial Intelligence & Data Analytics. He is conducting research on Emergent Communication, in particular multi-modal, multi-agent communication where he models AI agents to collaborate and invent efficient communication strategies for task completion and to come up with intelligence that imitates and approximates human intelligence.

He has a broad interest in the field of Data Analytics, Data Science, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Computational Linguistics, and Digital Humanities. Makanjuola has a notable understanding of data structures and algorithms, especially in the python programming language, and has been fortunate to be a two-time co-facilitator of the Deeper Life Young Adult - Dallas Region Bootcamp!

Thomas Torku

Mr. Thomas Torku is a talented mathematics educator with focus on student success and empowers students of different ability levels to excel in math. He is a Ph.D. computational science candidate at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU-USA) who deploys numerical analysis, machine learning and deep learning in epidemiology research and stochastic differential equations.

Due to this passion for real application of data science, Mr. Torku is currently working for JPMorgan Chase & Co. as Quantitative Analyst Summer Associate Intern. He makes use of popular data science libraries such as NumPy, pandas, TensorFlow, Pytorch, Pyspark etc. to draw insights from data-driven models.

With his expertise in applied mathematics and data science, Mr. Torku hopes to impact knowledge, skills and understanding of the real-world applications of data science.
