Student Profiles

MIDS Student
“I believe that education needs data science leaders. Educators are increasingly aware of how they can use data — I see it as an opportunity to not just improve test scores, but to change the world for the better.”

MIDS Student
“Sensors are going to be ubiquitous, so how do we derive insight from billions of simultaneous data streams? Amazing things are happening with sensors and the scale is going to be huge.”

Ph.D. Student
“I think we can do a better job of using the Internet to tap into how people are doing, how they’re feeling, and what matters to them — online democracy, in a way, but minus the hype.”

Ph.D. Student
“The I School attracts people who don’t want to be put in a box. Ph.D. students have diverse interests and talents that intersect to offer a rich and enlightening perspective.”

MIDS Student
“Data science is an amazing job where you get to be a detective, an artist, and a coder all at once. It’s challenging; you have to be tenacious — but the results are so worth it.”

MIDS Student
“The MIDS program is the most well-rounded data science program available. Because data science is still a broad and evolving field, a comprehensive degree is more beneficial than a narrowly-specialized one.”
