Dual Degree with Econometrics & Statistics
Biography: I am currently in Statistics and Econometrics double majoring and transferred to the university 2018.
Why Information Sciences: I find that data and computing become increasingly important today in our modern world ranging from technological innovation, analysis of human behavior, social structure and natural phenomena to the solutions to world-wide issues. In fact, from my perspective, data science, which is vigorously developing, gradually becomes a new force of production in a wide range of fields and industries. With this belief, I always seek for opportunities to enrich my data science knowledge by participating in interdisciplinary projects to have an insightful exploration on specific topics with social value and to have a systematic research on certain aspects of data science. The Information Science major offers me Data Science and Data & Society pathways, which are in parallel to my belief.
