Why Data Science?
Data Science is at the intersection of a lot of things that she’s interested in – math & logic, finding insights and value in the massive amount of information we are collecting in the Internet age, and the ethics of how we use and communicate that information. She is especially interested in encouraging the field of data science and computing to hold themselves to a higher ethical standard.
