Upon graduating with her doctorate in chemical engineering, Krista was hired into ExxonMobil where she managed a global team responsible for developing, deploying and supporting model validation software applications for refineries. She established long-term technology development and deployment plans at ExxonMobil, ensuring technical quality of applications, and consulting and implementation of a 5-year technology deployment plan. Krista joined Seeq in 2018 as a senior leader who has published multiple articles in the oil and gas sector, presented at industry events, and won enthusiastic support based on her presentations and individual customer engagements.

Fun fact: Krista’s deliberate, thoughtful way of solving analytics challenges comes in handy when playing cooperative board games and has earned her the nickname of “the professor” at Seeq.
