TALK TITLE: Forthcoming
The Meet a Data Scientist series is a chance to get up close and personal with top-level data science professionals. Join us for a talk with Athena Hadjixenofontos, head of the Wells Fargo Quantitative Analytics Center of Excellence on AI Model Development in Phoenix, Arizona.
The purpose of the Meet a Data Scientist lecture series is to introduce our audience to the people behind the data, their lives, interests, career choices, their work, and passion for how they can use data to solve grand challenges in their respective fields. Join us as we peer behind the curtain and meet the data scientists behind the data!
Athena leads the NLP (natural language processing) Risk & Compliance team at the AI Model Development Center of Excellence within Wells Fargo’s Enterprise Analytics and Data Science organization. Under Athena’s leadership, the talented data scientists on the team have developed models that improve risk mitigation efforts across business lines and ensure regulatory compliance. Athena got her PhD in statistical genetics from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and went on to complete her postdoctoral training at Yale University. She lives in Phoenix with her neuroscientist wife, their curious toddler, and one very relaxed cat.
