BIOGRAPHY

In undergrad, Chelsea planned to become a spy. Plans changed, and she became a programmer instead. By day, Chelsea writes machine learning models to assist with annotating and interpreting legal text. By night, she builds mobile apps and data visualizations contributing to climate protection, citizen science, and racial justice. She spends the rest of her time lifting weights, looking for the best locally-owned spots in Chicago, and writing about engineering/the tech industry at chelseatroy.com.
