Hi, I'm Rachel.
I love finding patterns in large datasets and enjoy helping others do the same.
I am currently the Director of Data Science for Fidelity National Financial, where I am helping to build a culture of data-driven insight and innovation.
An abbreviated timeline...
|2001||I got my start as an operations processor in the unclaimed property department at Wells Fargo Bank, where I learned business process, database, and in-house software design from the ground up.|
|2005||From there, I took my skills as a business analyst to the next level at Fidelity National Financial, where I focused primarily on large software integrations spanning operations, accounting, and reporting systems.|
|2012||I left the corporate world to pursue a PhD in mathematics, which I earned in May 2017 from Rutgers University. My work focused on topological methods for high-dimensional data analysis with a specialization in persistent homology.|
|2017||Following my graduate studies, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, where my research was funded by DARPA's MoDyL program.|
|2018||Rejoined the Fidelity National Financial family as their Director of Data Science.|
As always: looking forward to the next big adventure!
