Laura received her Bachelor’s from James Madison University, where she first started programming by using Python to manage autonomous computations while studying bacterial genomics. So, despite turning into a polyglot, Python is both her favorite and native programming language. She now works as a data and software engineer, implementing and operating diverse solutions with both the data and web team using Python tools and frameworks such as Django, Flask, pandas, and scikit-learn. She teaches introductory Python with District Data Labs and Georgetown University.
