Hi, my name is Anya Michaelsen. I am a Data Scientist at Gap Inc, with a Masters in Mathematics from UC Berkeley where I was advised by Melanie Wood. I also received the Graduate Certificate in Applied Data Science through UC Berkeley’s School of Information. You can learn more about my background and projects here. For undergrad I attended Williams College where I completed my thesis with Susan Loepp. My research interests were in (algebraic) number theory, arithmetic statistics, and commutative algebra. For more information on my mathematical research, qualifying exam preparation/advice, or math related articles see my math page.

When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking (the photos are from some of my adventures), climbing, skiing, and more recently running. When I’m not in the great outdoors I love hanging out at coffee shops, board games and word games, cooking, and sometimes trying my hand at baking.
