Welcome to our new Alliance leaders!
Robin Baidya (he/him)
Events Coordinator
I am a data science postdoctoral fellow at the VA Boston Healthcare System, a part of the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.  Before moving to Franklin in 2022, I followed an academic career path in pure mathematics, starting as an undergraduate student at The Ohio State University and continuing as a graduate student at Georgia State University and as a lecturer at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. During this time, I taught 7 mathematics courses, and I helped organize 48 professional development events for STEM student organizations with 38 of these events addressing issues of diversity.  I enjoy watching opera, playing chamber music, discussing literature, testing recipes, and making new friends!
