Welcome to my portfolio! I am a candidate for an M.S. in Computer Science at UMass Amherst, concentrating in Data Science. Throughout my undergraduate studies in Industrial Engineering, I was introduced to the intersections between computer programming and statistics, which led me to realize that data science was a perfect amalgamation my interests. Other than working and studying, I spend my time baking, pouring latte art, traveling, and playing the piano. I am also the planning team director for a new hackathon being hosted at UMass! In my career, I hope to use statistics, computer science, and optimization to make a more efficient world.

Grad Student Applies Data Science to Combat Gun Violence
Katie House, a College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) master's student, has been concerned about the issue of gun violence since she was a child. She is also passionate about data science, and at TechTogether Boston, Boston's largest all-female and non-binary hackathon, she had the opportunity to merge the two.
I am graduating December of 2019 and am interested in full time opportunities starting January 2020. I hope to enhance my skills in data science, analytics, visualization, web development, or a related field.
I look forward to hearing from you!
