Physics Career Day 2018
Alumni who will come to this event
Julian is a Senior Researcher at Oscar Health Insurance in New York City. Julian received his PhD in Physics from UChicago in 2015. He studied a variety of problems in theoretical soft matter physics—mechanics of ice shelves, viscous fingering instabilities, and splashing—and wrote his dissertation on properties of the coffee ring effect. After graduating, Julian began working at Oscar, a technology-focused health insurance startup. Julian currently leads provider research and is trying to figure out who doctors are, what they do, whether they’re good, and how much to pay them.
Tianheng (Harry) Han
Tianheng Han joined Allstate in 2016 as a data scientist. Working on a team, he performs statistical analysis and builds predictive models to study sales performance of agencies. With a partnership outside Allstate’s Data Science Department, his new ideas are tested, improved, and implemented. Tianheng received his B.S. in Physics in 2006 from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Ph.D. in Physics in 2012 from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Before joining Allstate, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory for four years.
Milica Medved, PhD DABMP obtained her Bachelor’s in theoretical physics at the University of Belgrade (Serbia) in 1995, and her PhD in experimental physics at the University of Chicago in 2000. She is a Research Associate Professor at the University of Chicago Department of Radiology, where she also serves as the Operations Director at the MRI Research Center. She is a Certified Medical Physicist with 20 years of experience in clinical MRI research, primarily in cancer MR imaging, focusing on quantitative MRI methods in DWI, DCE-MRI, and water/fat spectroscopic imaging.
Satomi Shiraishi is currently a clinical medical physics fellow in Radiation Oncology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. She received her B.S. in physics in 2007 and Ph.D. in 2013, both from University of Chicago, working on high-energy physics analysis and accelerator physics projects. As a medical physics fellow, Satomi is undergoing comprehensive training in various cancer treatment modalities using accelerators and radioactive seeds as well as researching ways to improve quality of radiation treatment.
