As with many data scientists, this wasn’t my initial career objective. In fact it wasn’t even seen as a viable option at that time. However I needed to manage data for my physical science projects and the teams I supported, so I reluctantly accepted this task as part of my “real” science job. Over the years, many challenges have been solved, that then allow us the ability to address more difficult issues. This presentation will address current data scientist challenges from a “real” scientist’s perspective at a federal archive.
