Jane Sherman is an Adjunct Professor of Management in the School of Business at Golden Gate University. Jane has been developing statistical models since 2010 when she joined FICO’s Research team, where she built models that optimized credit lending decisions. Shortly after, she worked as an Analytics Manager at Tree.com where she was the architect for the data infrastructure and pioneered the program for data-based modeling. Currently, she is the Chief Marketing Officer of hashmarx, a startup that provides fantasy football analytics.
