Meredith Student Featured by International Data Science Organization

Meredith College student Emma Brooks, ’24, has been featured on the website of Women in Data Science (WiDS) Worldwide.  

Brooks is earning a degree in mathematics and computer science with a minor in data science. In the WiDs article, she discusses how her interest in data science began at Meredith.

“After learning about the data science field my second year at Meredith, I felt that the mix of math and coding involved was right up my alley. I heard about Meredith’s fairly new data science program from an upperclass student and registered for the first intro class to try it out.”

She also credited Meredith faculty member Emily Lada for supporting her interest.

“Dr. Emily Lada, my data science professor, has also played an important role in my interest in the field. She has not only been a great teacher but also a strong and accomplished female role model in the industry. I feel very fortunate to have had support from dedicated and intelligent women in data science, whether they be my classmates or professors.”
