David Mongeau joined the SASW and UTSA community in July 2021.  He is accountable for leading the School of Data Science to the forefront of data science research, education, and value creation for government, industry, and community partners.  

David was previously Executive Director, Berkeley Institute for Data Science, University of California, Berkley; co-led the data analytics institute at The Ohio State University; and championed the concept and original proposal for a new company launched with $42M from seven corporations to meet their advanced analytics and cybersecurity needs.  The company is now Covail.  A decade ago, David completed a 25+ year career in communications, data, IT, and networking research at Bell Labs (Nokia, Alcatel, Lucent, AT&T).  He finished while launching a global consulting practice for digital transformation and began by working on the first C++ language compiler.  

David often speaks about data science workforce development strategies.  He is engaged in child advocacy (guardian ad litem) and suicide prevention (Samaritans, Inc.).  He holds a BS from Carnegie Mellon University, an MS from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and an MBA from the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University.   

Led by the vision of its Founding Director, David Mongeau, and championed by community leader Graham Weston, the UTSA School of Data Science is gearing up to unleash thousands of students each year into the urban corridor of downtown San Antonio starting in 2022!  

Where will we feel the impact of these students the most?  How will they live/work/play in our ever-evolving urban corridor?  What does this mean for businesses and communities in the area?  What kinds of companies will now come knocking on the doors of San Antonio in an effort to win the hearts of this specialized talent ready to enter the workforce?
