CDN Career panel on data science master's programs


Justin Kitzes
Justin Kitzes
Background: Justin Kitzes studied earth systems as an undergraduate student at Stanford and went on to earn his master’s degree from the same program. He earned his PhD in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at UC Berkeley, where he subsequently completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science. At BIDS, Justin was a data science fellow and a postdoctoral scholar in the Energy and Resources Group. His research focused on the development and application of quantitative approaches for predicting the effects of land use and climate change on biodiversity. 
Current Role: Justin is an Assistant Professor of biological sciences at the University of Pittsburgh. His lab, the Kitzes Lab, focuses on measuring, understanding, and predicting biodiversity loss on a planet increasingly dominated by human activities. As part of their effort to advance this area of research, his lab has developed several open source monitoring protocols and software packages.
Last year, Justin collaborated with two researchers to organize AudioXD, a meeting that convened a cross-disciplinary group of audio data scientists to share research and collaborate on tools like the ones developed by his lab. He hopes to convene another meeting in the near future. If this sounds interesting to you, reach out! You can also learn more about AudioXD, along with ImageXD and TextXD, at the ADSA Annual Meeting in October.
Outside of Work: When Justin isn’t researching, teaching, mentoring, building data science communities, and serving as a trusted advisor to organizations like ADSA, he is hanging out with his kiddos in fun places like museums and parks.
