7:30pm: Growing Data Science Talent through Structured Problem Solving with Jolene Mork, Senior Data Scientist at Macy's
Talk Abstracts:

What makes a data science team more than a collection of smart individuals feeding data through algorithms? At Macy's, the core skills that unite the data science team are a knack for structured problem solving-taking a vague business ask, breaking it down to understand the underlying question, & then abstracting the question to components solvable with math-and structured communication, which allows us to communicate & effect change in our organization. This talk will focus on a specific business case drawn from pricing to illustrate the transformation of a vague business ask into a solvable data science problem, & discuss how it reflects the structured problem solving philosophy that underlies the work of the data science team at Macy's.

Jolene is a Senior Data Scientist working within the Macy's Supply Chain organization, leading projects related to improving the return on investment in fashion inventory through enhanced pricing & allocation strategies. She is passionate about developing intuitive explanations for how models work, & influencing the organization to adopt analytics into business practices. Before Macy's, Jolene received her Ph.D. in physical chemistry from MIT, where she performed laser spectroscopy experiments to measure properties of the fluorescent nanoparticles used to generate the color in Samsung's QLED TVs.
