Kerstin Frailey: Contact & Bio

I strive to be a data leader with practical side and a touch of humor. I stumbled into data science and got labelled a data scientist back before HBR convinced everyone they wanted one or wanted to be one. I’ve done years as an IC and as a leader, in the Bay Area and beyond. And despite that, I still have faith that data can revolutionize your company–if you let it.

Masters in Mathematical Statistics (UIC), Masters in Mathematical Computer Science (UIC), and the Masters in Statistics that I got along the way to get a PhD (Cornell) (I left the PhD All-But-Dissertation to become a Director of Data Science). Yale BA, University of Chicago Data Science for Social Good Fellow, Second City Conservatory Graduate, and one of my two dogs has graduated puppy 101.
