We're very excited to have two awesome r-ladies speakers for our May meetup: Kaelen Medeiros & Angeline Protacio.
6:00-6:30: Arrival Networking
Angeline will be talking about using the tidyverse to collect & analyze baseball data to draft a competitive fantasy baseball team. She'll also be speaking about her path into becoming a data science consultant.
Kaelen will speak about their journey to becoming a data scientist.
Angeline is currently a data scientist at Protacio Analytics, consulting on projects spanning different disciplines. Her background is in epidemiology & genetics (though not both at the same time), & has experience working with data relating to mental health, breast cancer risk, & environmental risk factors. She spends her free time trying to win at fantasy baseball (with data), & practicing French.
Kaelen is a Data Scientist for the Product team at DataCamp, where theyre responsible for the campus app (the place where you take courses) & the mobile & practice apps, plus authored a course for the site, Experimental Design in R. Kaelen received their MS in Biostatistics from the School of Public Health at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in 2016 & has previously worked at the American College of Surgeons & HERE Technologies. Kaelen likes cats, podcasts, aliens, & data, & is ready to talk about any or all of them at any time.
The conference floor is on the 13th floor. Upon arrival you'll need to check-in with security (please have a photo ID), who will let you in. The 13th floor is accessible via the middle elevator bank. There are signs showing the same, & worst case wed expect security to assist in showing the way. Finally as you arrive on the 13th floor, some signs with the name of the event will indicate which way to go.
