Dr. Brandeis Marshall, a Professor of Computer Science in the Computer and Information Sciences Department at Spelman College, is Founder/CEO of the DataedX

In research, Dr. Marshall is interested in discovering effective ways of handling text-based data and information. The three main focuses are: (1) labelled data analysis, (2) unlabeled data analysis and (3) fixed-length data analysis resulting in 30+ scholarly refereed publications including journal articles, conference and extended abstracts. Dr Marshall is currently serving as the PI of an HBCU-UP Targeted Infusion Project entitled Data Science eXtension, which aims to integrate data science fundamentals in curriculum at Spelman and Morehouse Colleges. She is also a PI of NSF-funded Data-Driven Discovery and Alliance, which is devising targeted exposure to data science for science and engineering fields through the establishment of an Atlanta-based multi-institutional cooperative alliance. Other research includes the BlackTwitter Project, that blends data analytics, social impact and race as a lens to understanding cultural sentiments.  

Aside from her scholarly endeavors, she have been actively engaged in mentoring the next generation of STEM professionals, particularly those from under-represented groups. This engagement has included serving on the program committees for the ACM Richard Tapia Diversity in Computing Conference, serving as a committee member of SuperComputing's Broader Engagement and Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. From 2012 to 2016, Dr. Caio Soares and she co-lead the Broadening Participation in Data Mining Program, co-located with KDD.
