Katherine Anderson is a data scientist because she knows statistics better than most software developers and has better programming skills than most statisticians. She holds a B.S. in Mathematical Sciences and Materials Science Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and an M.S. in Applied Mathematics from University of Southern California. She loves figuring out how to manipulate data in R and Python to help develop and represent mathematical algorithms. Freya Systems gives her the freedom to work in “puzzle-solving” mode and the guidance to contribute to overall business needs. As a graduate of the Zip Code Wilmington coding bootcamp, she also enjoys Freya’s similar approach to work in that we all take our work seriously while maintaining a fun work environment. Outside of work, Katherine sings in two a cappella groups, plays board games, competes in Quizzo nights in Media, and enjoys spending time with her husband and two cats.
