About our Guest Alumni
Beatriz received her Master’s degree (MSc) in International Development and Management from Lund University and obtained her BA in Social Work from Mercyhurst University. Prior to Metis she was a data analyst and researcher working on implementation projects of the Social Progress Index in Central America and California, with emphasis data visualization. She previously worked as a consultant at Oxfam GB (Thailand) in the first program focused on urban development, addressing issues on urban resilience, gender inclusion and sustainability. As a data scientist, Beatriz is focused on data-driven solutions through predictive models and likes to use data to create social impact.
Nicholas is a product focused data scientist and experience designer working at the intersection of immersive art, consciousness research and social impact.
The mission in all the work he creates, regardless of form or medium, is to place the individual within universal experiences that speak to relevant social issues, and thereby ask the individual to consider their responsibility within a larger whole. He seeks to challenge the individual to find empathy and connection to others' experience and believes that immersive experiences (whether live, digital or mixed reality) are a strong conduit for provoking thought and response.
Nicholas has been in the experience design industry since 2012, graduated with an MBA in Leadership and Managing Organizational Change in 2014 from Pepperdine University, and completed the Metis Data Science immersive in September 2019.
Metis (https://thisismetis.com/) accelerates data science learning for individuals, companies, and institutions through corporate training and accredited, immersive bootcamps.
The Metis bootcamp curriculum is designed and delivered by highly educated and industry-experienced practitioners, and all bootcamp graduates receive hands-on career support until they’re hired. Campuses are located in Chicago, New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.
On the corporate side, Metis works with large organizations who want to upskill their teams in data science and analytics to gain efficiencies, remain competitive, and improve their bottom lines. Metis is proud to be backed by Kaplan, a global leader in education.
