Presentation: Chairperson Opening Remarks
Francisca studied Electrical Engineering at Barcelona Tech (UPC), and subsequently earned a PhD in Applied Mathematics at Mines ParisTech, where she worked on the development of image and video processing algorithms. As the first human genome was sequenced at the turn of the century, she felt she could not miss the opportunity to participate in untangling the mysteries of life, and became a computational biologist – a data scientist working on understanding biological data - working for a biotech company for 11 years.
Later, her unfading curiosity took her to explore the world of business and management and obtained an MBA from IE Business School, after which she joined Expedia, where she is currently a Sr Director of Analytics. Throughout her career, Francisca has built and managed several teams of data science professionals and strongly believes that – always, but even more so in the world of technology - it’s all about people.
