Why I choose to work at Academic Innovation:
After starting out at Academic Innovation as a Student Fellow, I fell in love with the way AI allowed me to bridge data science skills with interests in education and learning analytics. I chose to work at AI because being here means that I’m always exploring new data science methodologies while making a positive impact on the online education space. Not to mention, AI is full of some of the best people you could hope to work with!
Current Roles/Previous Experience:
Prior to joining Academic Innovation I completed my Master’s in Information Science at the University of Michigan School of Information. As a Master’s student I was able to develop skills in areas including predictive modeling, data mining, natural language processing, and data visualization. Before completing my Master’s, I completed a Bachelor’s in Psychology at Kalamazoo College.

Currently I work closely with teams throughout Academic Innovation to provide support on a number of projects within the portfolio. As a data scientist, I am responsible for generating data-driven insights about both the University’s online course portfolio as well as Academic Innovation’s portfolio of online tools. In particular, I am interested in data science communication with a focus on making data accessible to people with varied levels of technical experience and interest.
