Why did you choose Data Science? I chose the Data Science major for a couple reasons. Chief among them: effective data science has the power to investigate the world around us, inform people, and inspire action. Pretty awesome. I fell in love with the Data Science major because it offers an opportunity to connect with faculty and peers and share an intense passion for all areas of study that contribute to that ever-ephemeral definition of "data science". These connections, and this ability to be openly enthusiastic about a field, make me confident that I've made the right choice.

Ask me about: You can ask me about research, how to talk with professors and faculty, or what the role of a data scientist is in society.
