"I had the privilege of learning Data Science & Machine learning from Debbie, who is also the Chief Data Scientist for Metis and a fascinating TV personality. Her impeccable educational and professional credentials are reflective of her knowledge and delivery of tough concepts in ML. Debbie is one of those exemplary instructors who also naturally serves as an inspiring mentor. It was a delight to work on projects under her as she exhibits strong interpersonal skills and a unique capacity for empathy. I would always cherish the valuable wealth of knowledge gained from her!!" - Varun, Senior Technology Manager 

"If great data scientists are rare, Debbie is a true unicorn. Of course, she has deep technical chops and an incredible academic pedigree, but what makes her stand apart is her ability to communicate and inspire; her ability to translate incredibly complicated concepts into digestible, easy-to-understand ideas; and her relentless mission neither to let numbers and code obfuscate her audience, nor to let her audience get away with not thinking critically about the problems they encounter. I hired Debbie almost five years ago to join Metis as Chief Data Scientist, and in that short time, she not only impacted countless lives and careers but also she challenged and changed us profoundly as an organization." - Jason, Founder & President, Metis
