Gabrielle Smith

Pronouns: she/hers

Gabrielle is a current graduate student of the UC Santa Barbara Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, studying to earn a Master’s degree in Environmental Data Science. Gabrielle holds a Bachelor’s degree in Statistics and Data Science from UC Santa Barbara (2022). Her passion for environmental equity first emerged in 2018 in Mueang Kong, Thailand, where she worked on an agricultural development project with GIVE Volunteers. She recognized data’s capacity to aid in providing support for underserved and underrepresented populations, and spent the remainder of her time as an undergraduate student exploring opportunities in this setting. Since 2018, she has worked as a research assistant for Koegel Autism Center collecting and processing psychophysiological and observational data in order to study child developmental outcomes in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Gabrielle also worked as a CCAMPIS Program Evaluation Coordinator, during which she analyzed and synthesized data to secure grant funding from the California Department of Education to aid increased access to post-secondary education for UC Santa Barbara student families. She is eager to transition formally into an environmental field and to refine her technical undergraduate skills (including time series forecasting, machine learning analysis, and regression analysis) during her graduate studies to broaden the reach of her future work.
