Join a panel of leading computational social scientists and data scientists for an evening discussion on collaboration, equality, and skills future social scientists need to work with big data.

Panellists Milena Tsvetkova, Chanuki Seresinhe, Giselle Cory and James Allen Robertson will talk about how they got started working with data, what exciting projects they’re part of, and what skills they think students should focus on to work with big data, both in industry and academia.

The panel, chaired by Katie Metzler, Associate VP of Product Innovation at SAGE Publishing, will address why gender equality is so important in more male dominated industries and disciplines and why a collective responsibility is key to achieving gender parity.

Tuesday 8th October, 6:30pm – 9pm.

RocketSpace, 40 Islington High Street, London, N1.
