CCN Forum: Cognitive Neuroscience to Data Science: An Application of your Ph.D. in Tech

Mary K. Thomas, Data Science Manager at Facebook (Former CCN Student - Katie Askren)

Abstract: A Ph.D. is preparation for the professoriate in most disciplines, but many people with a Ph.D. find careers outside of academia. Data science is one of the wide range of non-academic career paths. Data science leverages skills trained in scientific disciplines including data interpretation, programming, and statistics to ask and answer industry-relevant questions. At Facebook, we rely on our data scientists to help us decide how to create products that ‘“give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.”
