My name is Richard Knoche. I recently finished my Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Maryland, where I was advancing signal corrections and calibration techniques for the the world’s most sensitive dark matter detector, LUX. While I enjoyed the deep understanding of nature and the challenging experiences that a career in physics brings, I also found a passion for using data analysis to contribute to the decision making process of our large collaboration. To align my career with this passion, I’m transitioning to a career in the data science industry.
