Dr. Kim Scott is a data science leader and innovator who has built solutions across various industries. She has a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics from the University of Evansville and a Ph.D. in Astronomy from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. For her dissertation, she designed and built specialized statistical solutions to detect galaxies in the early Universe from low signal-to-noise millimeter-wavelength imagery. As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, she supported the commissioning of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile by developing new algorithms for combining the signals of multiple radio telescopes.
Prior to EarthOptics, Kim co-founded Astraea, an artificial intelligence platform for big geospatial data that build computer vision solutions using data from satellite imagery. Originally from Indiana, Kim was sown and cultivated in the breadbasket of America with fields of corn, soy, and wheat as her next-door neighbors.
