Hi! My name is Alyssa Columbus, and I recently graduated from the University of California, Irvine with my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a specialization in Applied and Computational Mathematics. My professional interests include software development in R, predictive modeling, and data visualization (especially with the use of R Shiny).
Along with my full-time position in data science at Pacific Life, I am a NASA Datanaut, the founder of R-Ladies Irvine, an alumni advisor at Colleges Against Cancer at UCI, and a STEM outreach volunteer at Girl Scouts of Orange County. I also was formerly a member of the National Campus Leadership Team for Relay For Life and a researcher at the Athena Breast Health Network.
I love my work and enjoy each new challenge as it arises. Feel free to have a look at my portfolio and experience, and don’t hesitate to contact me if you think I can be of service to you.
