Nauvoo Perez is a third-year undergraduate student at La Trobe University studying a Bachelor of Science majoring in Statistics. During her first semester of studies, Nauvoo discovered the joys of debugging, looking for lost semi-colons, and creating applications that run off of noodle logic. Since then, Nauvoo has been exploring the various spaces wherein statistics and programming intersect. In addition to building her career as a biostatistician or data scientist, Nauvoo aspires to one day work with young mothers who wish to return to formal education to pursue a STEM career.
Outside of her academic endeavours, Nauvoo can be found bouldering, participating in collaborative storytelling, or trying to beat the Amazon campaign in Settlers III.
