Campus talk to explore growth of data science, analytics
How the field of data science and analytics has developed will be reviewed in the presentation “Data Science and Analytics Opportunities in Academia and Industry Across Disciplines” by Dr. Joaquin Carbonara, a research professor of Mathematics at SUNY Buffalo State, on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at noon in Williams Center Room G103B.
Dr. Carbonara, who directs the interdisciplinary unit Data Science and Analytics M.S. program at Buffalo State, will discuss how businesses and universities are taking advantage of this field to revamp their infrastructure, reorganize their leadership, optimize their operations, increase their revenues and impact society.
“The field has reached enough maturity to start bringing significant revenues and advantages to both academia and industry,” Carbonara observed.
For the last 10 years, Carbonara has worked extensively to connect academia and industry in data science. He has organized events and conferences, published peer reviewed papers and reports, created programs and obtained grants from the National Science Foundation and SUNY. Carbonara has also served on the executive board of the National Professional Science Master’s Association.
A native of Venezuela, Carbonara has a Ph.D. and M.S., both in Mathematics, from the University of California at San Diego, an M.S. in Computer Science from the University at Buffalo and a B.A. in Mathematics from San Diego State University. He has also studied in Venezuela and Italy.
