Abstract: From Academia to Corporate: One Data Scientist’s Path
Abstract: Getting into data science seems to be a unique path for each data scientist. This talk will chronicle the path Dr. Mandi Traud took from graduate school in North Carolina to Senior Data Scientist at Cybraics and President of Data Community DC. Mandi will talk about her data science projects all along the way and how she moved from academia to working for a company and volunteering in the data science community.
