Institute for Computational & Mathematical Engineering
I’m the Director of Finance and Operations (DFO) for the Institute for Computational & Mathematical Engineering (ICME), which is a degree-granting interdisciplinary institute where students study mathematical modeling, scientific computing and advanced computational algorithms for engineering and science applications.
I came to analytics after earning a PhD in linguistics, where I learned I love working in universities and solving logic puzzles but also that applied problem-solving was a better fit for me than academic research.
