The Data Sciences Speaker Series is intended as a collaborative marquee series, whose focus is data science and its intersection with other fields. Together, we seek to advance knowledge in the field of data science by featuring world-class speakers from academic, healthcare, industry, finance, technology, and other sectors and industries. In doing so, we hope to facilitate the exchange of ideas, information, and knowledge among researchers, practitioners, and other professionals, and to enhance educational opportunities for students and trainees.
Seminars are typically held on the third Monday of each month, from September to May, 4:00 to 5:00 pm ET. For 2022-23, seminars are planned for in-person, with remote options available for those who can only attend virtually.
