A little bit about me: I’m originally from Perú, and currently living in the US. I received my bachelor degree in Computer Science from the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru, and two Masters Degrees from North Carolina State University, one in Analytics, the other in Computer Science. I currently work at the Institute for Advanced Analytics at NC State as a Data Scientist, and I’m the co-founder for Women Technology Perú.
