Santona Tuli, PhD

Special guest

Our guest today is a physicist and data scientist who loves delving deep into data to learn insights that may be hidden by noise.

She’s earned a Bachelor’s in Physics and Mathematics from Trinity University and has gone on to earn a PhD in Physics, specializing in Nuclear Science and Quantum Chromodynamics from the University of California, Davis.

She currently leads a team of 5 doctoral and postdoctoral physicists studying a new plasma phase of matter and the elusive nuclear effects in high-energy proton and nucleus collisions at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

She’s got a knack for thoughtful feature engineering to extract maximum value from data while simultaneously reducing the data significantly.

She also emphasizes avoiding overfitting, identifying systematic bias and validating all results.

Her favorite part of data science is all of it - and she enjoys end-to-end project oversight: everything from designing and developing to testing and productionizing statistical data analysis pipelines.

So please, help me in welcoming our guest today - a woman who is excited by decision intelligent data science - Dr. Santona Tuli!
