Julia comes to Metis after working at JetBlue as a quantitative engineer. While at JetBlue, she used quantitative analysis and machine learning methods to provide continuous assessment of the aircraft fleet. Julia began her career as a structures engineer, where she designed repairs for damaged aircraft. In 2011, she transferred into a quantitative role at JetBlue and began her M.A. in Applied Math at Hunter College, where she focused on visualizations of various numerical methods including collocation and finite element methods. She discovered a deep appreciation for the combination of mathematics and visualizations and found data science to be a natural extension. Julia has also worked as an Expert in Residence for a company that provides data science training. She continues to collaborate on various projects including the development of stock trading algorithms. During certain seasons of her career, she has also worked on creative side projects such as Lia Lintern, her own fashion label.
