Data science can support evidence-based policymaking and innovation to enhance the quality of life where we all live, learn, work, and play.
The University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute, Darden School of Business, and Data Science Institute in partnership with the Northern Virginia Technology Council announce the Data Science for the Public Good Distinguished Speaker Series. The Distinguished Speaker Series will bring together key public and private stakeholders to discuss how “doing data science” can support evidence-based policymaking and innovation to enhance the quality of life where we all live, learn, work, and play.
Katharine Abraham, Director of the Maryland Center for Economics and Policy, and a professor of Survey Methodology and Economics at the University of Maryland, joins the Distinguished Speaker Series in September. Dr. Abraham was Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor Statistics from 1993–2001, a member of the Council of Economic Advisers from 2011–2013, and most recently chaired the Bipartisan Commission on Evidence-based Policymaking.
