Chris Frederick is an assistant teaching professor of Data Science in the College of Science at the University of Notre Dame, where he teaches graduate courses in statistical programming and business analytics. His main areas of focus include computer science, data engineering, data warehousing, data visualization, data governance, and entrepreneurship.

Immediately prior to becoming part of the College of Science, he was the Manager of the Business Intelligence Team for the Office of Information Technology and the Director for the Data-Driven Decision-Making program at the University of Notre Dame. In these roles, he oversaw the creation and development of an Enterprise Data Warehouse, Knowledge Graph, and Data Governance Program.

While at Notre Dame, Chris also co-founded three midwest based tech companies: the South Bend Code School, GiveGrove, and South Bend Code Works.

The South Bend Code School combats the technology skills gap at the earliest level by reforming technology education and making computer science accessible to students from all walks of life. Since its inception in 2015, the South Bend Code School has brought technology skills to over 1,000 students ages seven to 18 in five locations: South Bend, Elkhart, Fort Wayne, Bloomington, and Port Huron, Michigan.

GiveGrove, a cloud-based SaaS platform, simplifies the process of running and managing non-profit fundraising events. After its launch day debut with the Center for the Homeless in 2017, GiveGrove has gone on to help hundreds of regional non-profits raise over four million dollars for their causes. GiveGrove is built on a scalable micro services architecture.

South Bend Code Works (SBCW), a digital product studio, brings an interdisciplinary approach to solving technical problems. A team that includes architects, senior developers, data analysts, designers, marketers, and entrepreneurs partners with clients to validate, develop, and deploy new technology and ideas. SBCW has successfully helped dozens of clients meet their goals and launch their next big tech product, brand, or idea.

Prior to working at Notre Dame, Chris was a lead developer at Walgreens Health Care Alliance and was responsible for the development of a number of systems including mail order automation facilities, inventory management systems, and new ventures.

Chris earned his Master's in Data Science from Indiana University and his Bachelors of Computer Software Systems from Saint Louis University.
