Graduating with a PhD in Computer Science in 2015, Olga’s academic career included research internships, mentoring students, lecturing, and data science consultancy.

As a former Agile Lead, Deputy Director and a certified Green Belt, Olga brings significant Lean Six Sigma experience to bear on her role in developing and delivering Agile's strategy to support operations excellence and service transformation in UCD.
