About

My name is Alyssa Columbus, and and my work is at the intersection of data science, information security, and privacy. I am a member of the Spring 2018 Class of NASA Datanauts, and my technical guides, tutorials, and articles have been featured by leading organizations, including Forbes, Microsoft, and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

I am an advocate of technological innovation, open-source software, and diversity in STEM. I am the founder of R-Ladies Irvine and a volunteer with the Girl Scouts of Orange County STEM Patrol.

I love my work and enjoy each new challenge as it arises. 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.
