How I became a Data Scientist

March 21, 2024
4:00pm    PGH 646


This talk will describe my journey to becoming a data scientist as a mathematics major. I will discuss my current roles as a professional mathematician employed by a nonprofit where I work with large language models and optical character recognition. I will also shed light on the career-paths I took since undergraduate, including various positions I have held with a BS or MS in Math. Lastly, I will show some examples of what my research in mathematical ecology consisted of at the master and undergraduate levels.

Faculty from the UH Math Department will answer questions about research/REUs/etc.

Pizza will be served.

Colloquium sponsored by the NSM Dean's office DUSEM grant
