As a data analyst, Caitlyn Palubin works across teams and with all levels of staff to provide analyses to empower data-informed decisions at CICS. Caitlyn joined CICS shortly after graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While at U of I, she studied Linguistics, Computer Science, Speech and Hearing Science, and Domestic and International Security. Along the way she built a UI for research in capturing error rates in disordered speech and worked in standardization of medical terminology. At one point in college, she found herself tutoring English as a Second Language to elementary-aged children and it was there she became interested in education. Outside of the office, Caitlyn is catching up with friends and family, finding the next small adventure, or doing yoga or lyra.
