Undergrad Institution: Brown University
Undergrad Major: Economics 

"My studied economics at Brown because I was interested in understanding why people make decisions. Seeking to improve efficiency in business processes, especially where data might shed light onto unseen solutions, I enrolled in UVA’s M.S. in Data Science to dig deeper into the machine learning tools that allow for more powerful information extraction. I enjoy learning new technology and am eager to grow in my ability to synthesize data and make informed business decisions."
