Stephanie deWet began her career in 2008 at L-3 Communications, working on realtime astronaut training simulations for NASA. She specialized in modeling of the external forces and environment of the spacecraft, such as atmosphere, gravity, and aerodynamics, and eventually led a small team working on this portion of the simulation. She then returned to school, earning a master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin in 2014. Since then, Stephanie has worked on the homefeed and recommendations team at Pinterest, where she has built new user recommendations and personalized blending models.
