Amber Thomas (https://proquestionasker.github.io) has always loved science, exploration, and discovery. Her natural curiosity, love of animals and the environment, and constant pursuit of knowledge led her into a marine biology and chemistry double major in college (BS/BA) and a Master’s degree in Marine Sciences. That generally leads people to think that she was “playing with animals” all day.
And while she did get to work with some amazing animals over the years…
Only about 5 - 10% of her time was spent working with animals. The rest was spent designing experiments and working with data.
When a co-worker introduced her by saying “This is Amber, she does data analysis”, she realized that, indeed, she was a data analyst (who happened to work with marine data).
So, she decided to pursue the analytical side of her work and enter the world of data science. She has been taking lots of classes, working on lots of personal projects, joining local Meetups, and looking for work in the field.
She is always looking for new people to chat with and new problems to solve, so feel free to reach out to her!
