For our ninth podcast episode, we are joined by the UCSD Library’s Data Science Librarian, Stephanie Labou. We begin by discussing with Stephanie about her practices as a Data Science Librarian, a seemingly unique job. She assists students with data acquisition and analysis while co-managing Geisel Libary’s Data and GIS Lab. She also engages in teaching through workshops in basic coding, data architecture, and software tools. Throughout this episode, we gather insights from Labou about the Library as a valuable resource for Data Scientists, and tips on producing practical Data Science projects. In the end, she helps students navigate through deciding on using public or private datasets.
