Lecturer, Analytics and Bioinformatics
Joy-El Talbot is a part-time lecturer in Analytics (College of Professional Studies) and Bioinformatics (College of Science) at the Roux. When not teaching, Talbot is a freelance data scientist and small business owner: serving early-stage companies through custom data solutions and strategic guidance. She started her career as a molecular biologist, earning her Ph.D. from UC-Berkeley while investigating how genomic regulation machinery impacts trait inheritance in maize. After graduation, Talbot joined the commercial consulting space as a data scientist and project lead at an Ohio startup. Whether it is a new tool, technique, or the context of a dataset, unquenchable curiosity drives her to keep exploring.
