Data Scientist Takes Hiatus from Industry and Embraces Academia Again with Jacobo Pereira-Pacheco 🇬🇹🇸🇻

A first-generation Guatemalan and Salvadoran immigrant, Jacobo Pereira-Pacheco is now preparing to leave the Bay Area as he enters the world of academia again and begins his PhD studies in Statistics and Scientific Computing at UC Santa Cruz. We had an inspiring conversation in which we discussed the world of Data Science and what a Data Practitioner does, the similarities between Statistics and Environmental Studies, and the queer Latinx community.    Additional Reading Mentioned in the Interview: Python: https://www.python.org/ R: https://www.r-project.org/about.html Julia: https://julialang.org/ Udemy: https://www.udemy.com Khan Academy: https://www.khanacademy.org/ FKA twigs: https://fkatwi.gs/   Our website is LatinXinPower.com.
