Josie is currently a research assistant at NYU Medical Center working with a team to implement machine learning into healthcare with the goal to create technology that can predict chronic kidney disease more than two years in advance. Her particular role deals with algorithmic fairness and ensuring universal accuracy for all demographic subgroups. Josie also previously worked as the Engineering Lead at Draft.Fish, where she managed a team of developers and assisted in programming a time management application called Robin, which is now in its beta phase. Josie is also founder and president of an organization called Students of Color in Computer Science, which is based at NYU. One of the things she finds of utmost importance is bringing computer education and general exposure to software development to underrepresented demographics. There, the club serves to promote the growth and development of a community of people of color passionate about computer science. Our overall goal is to increase the number of people of color in the computer science field by holding workshops to teach basic programming concepts, volunteering at organizations geared towards minorities, and providing opportunities for internships outside of an academic setting.
