Madison Myers received her BA in political science and liberal studies from NYU and her MA in the same subjects from King's College London. After working in diplomacy and international relations for a few years she felt she could have more of an impact on the world if she gained skills in data science, which led her to the MIDS degree. After graduating from UC Berkeley, she started as a data scientist at IBM and now, a year and a half later, is a Senior Data Scientist at Change Healthcare, an Artificial Intelligence focused branch of McKesson.
