Elsa Birch

Software Engineer

I work across the stack as a Software Engineer at Pinterest. A particular interest of mine is in using data and data visualization to navigate engineering planning, building, and maintenance in large systems.

Chemical Engineering Ph.D.

I spent two fiery years in interdisciplinary technical consulting at Exponent, where I provided rapid hands-on testing, troubleshooting, and litigation support related to consumer products such as appliances and automobiles.

I did my doctoral work at Stanford, in the lab of Markus Covert. There I spent my time coding mathematical models of microbial metabolism. My primary contribution was re-engineering their assumptions to better fit single cell scale, in order to enable whole cell software applications. As an undergraduate I studied at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
