Christine McLeavey Payne
Christine was co-valedictorian of Princeton with a degree in physics, and then studied neuroscience and medicine at Stanford. Also a trained classical pianist, she moved away from science for a few years when she had the opportunity to join a chamber music group with members of the SF Symphony. After seeing how exciting deep learning and AI is, but also how fundamentally it will affect future generations (including her two young kids!), she realized she needed to return and be a part of this work.
