Hi, there! I'm Brandeis Marshall
Trained as a computer scientist and an educator-scholar by profession, I teach, speak and write about the impact of data practices on technology and society. I focus on educating and producing scholarship that amplifies Black women thriving in data and tech careers. I started DataedX (pronounced data-ed-x) Group. DataedX Group, at its core, counteracts automated oppression efforts with culturally-responsive instruction and strategies. We strengthen your data equity resolve -- that ability to acknowledge and perpetuate the anti-discriminatory narrative centering non-white people and communities throughout the data life cycle.
Why data? Because data is fueling the algorithms that’s making the tech and that tech is perpetuating harm to Black women. We can end this relentless cycle with culturally responsible data education and intentional processes dissemination.
I hold a Ph.D. and Master of Science in Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Rochester. Currently, I'm a Stanford PACS Practitioner Fellow and Partner Research Fellow at Siegel Family Endowment. I'm on sabbatical leave from Spelman College, where I'm a Full Professor of Computer Science.
