Ph.D., Director of Data Science and Machine Learning at EagleView
Dr. Shay Strong is the Director of Data Science and Machine Learning at EagleView. She received her Ph.D. in Astrophysics from the University of Texas at Austin, focused on Gas Giant planetary atmospheric modeling. Prior to EagleView, she worked at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab in Maryland as a Senior Scientist for both National Security Space and NASA spacecraft development and design. She left Johns Hopkins to be a part of a small D.C.-based startup called OmniEarth, focused on developing and deploying machine learning algorithms against remotely sensed imagery. There, she developed a system to evaluate residential water usage, at scale in the cloud, for the Western U.S. with geospatial deep learning techniques. She joined EagleView as part of the successful EagleView acquisition of OmniEarth in May 2017, where she develops and leads machine learning data extraction of information from imagery for insurance and government applications.
