Hi, I'm Rachel.
I love finding patterns in large datasets and enjoy helping others do the same.
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania. My research focuses primarily on topological methods for high-dimensional data analysis, with a specialization in persistent homology.
I originally got my start in 2001 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. 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. I left the corporate world in 2012 to pursue a PhD in mathematics, which I earned in May 2017 from Rutgers University.
As always: looking forward to the next big adventure!
