This is a place holder announcement more to follow.
This will be data talk rather than data science talk. This isn't your run of the mill data drove my business to greatness but it will be a talk about how “different data tell different stories” message as well as emphasizing the importance of looking at multiple types of data to solve a problem. In this case the problem that will be examined is about the cosmos.
We are pleased to have Angela Van Sistine, PhD a Sr Data Scientist at Northwestern Mutual, who not too long ago was a postdoc at UWM in the Astronomy department where she managed and analyzed a large astronomical survey of galaxies in the nearby universe. Her dissertation project completed at Indiana University involved designing, executing, and analyzing a survey of over 1500 galaxies to study star formation in the local universe. She also has a doctoral minor in Scientific Computing. Her science journey started at UW Madison with studies in physics and astrophysics.
This meeting will be conducted via Zoom, doors open at 5:15 pm CST and will continue for approximately an hour of talk followed by a Q&A.
