Stefano Meschiari, Ph.D.

Product Data Scientist at Civitas Learning


Hello there! I am a Data Scientist at Civitas Learning. I am also a maker of open-source scientific tools and games, an open data enthusiast, and all-around tech geek.

As a data scientist, I research novel ways to help universities improve their students' success using machine learning. As an astronomer, I discovered new planets and worked on understanding how Tatooine-like planets (planets orbiting binary stars) formed.
