Data Science to Software Engineering and Back Again

Industrial Problems Seminar

Cora Brown (Bridge Financial Technology)

You may attend the talk either in person in Walter 402 or register via Zoom. Registration is required to access the Zoom webinar.


In this talk I will discuss my early career as a Data Scientist and Software Engineer. The skills necessary for these two types of roles overlap and complement each other. Drawing on my experiences in both fields, I will share some of the skills I’ve found valuable in each position and why I’ve chosen to follow this path. I will focus on the ways in which developing solid software skills have made me a better Data Scientist. Finally, I will describe some of the specific problems I’ve worked on as a Data Scientist and Software Engineer and how a background in mathematics can aid in solving these problems.
