Welcome to Karianne's Website!
My research interest is in scientific machine learning (SciML). My past work has focused on machine learning for pattern recognition and discovery in large, noisy sensor data sets, with applications in earthquake seismology and biodefense.
I did my postdoctoral training at Harvard University as a Data Science Initiative Postdoctoral Fellow in Computer Science. I earned my Ph.D (and M.S.) in Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University, and my B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from Brown University. I have also worked as a data scientist at MIT-Lincoln Laboratory.
I am also passionate about data science education and diversity and inclusion in data science. I have taught a number of courses and workshops that aim to make data science accessible to students and professionals from a range of disciplinary backgrounds.
