M Pacer was a computational cognitive scientist working as a core developer on the Jupyter Project. Her work focused on developing mechanisms for integrating computational narratives (e.g., Jupyter notebooks) into the scientific publishing pipeline, with long range goals to make a data set appropriate for scientific language processing, which required joint inference on natural language (as scientific prose in which connections to previous work and theory are usually established), mathematical language (as equations, formalisms, and theorems that precisely express theoretical relations), and programming language (in the explicit or implicit computations that connect data to theories).
