My Early Career as a Data Scientist in Renewable Energy

Industrial Problems Seminar

Sarah Milstein (NextEra Analytics)

Abstract

In this talk, I will describe some of the renewable energy projects that I've worked on in my current role as a data scientist at NextEra Analytics. These projects include determining the optimal size and design for a new solar power plant and recommending power trades between utilities. Before this job, while I was completing my math PhD at UMN, I spent much of my time doing internships, projects, and independent studies in data science. I will also describe some of this pre-job experience, giving suggestions for ways that you might prepare for your own career.
