What I Do

I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Applied Statistics at Villanova University. I am currently enrolled full time with three classes. I was also accepted as a Graduate Assistant which requires me to work 20 hours a week for the Mathematics and Statistics Department. I will be tutoring, holding study sessions, grading papers, and assisting with classes. By fulfilling these duties while being a student, my tuition gets waived and I receive a monthly stipend to assist with my living needs as well. I plan to graduate in May 2021 and then enter the workforce. In the future, I hope to find a job in the sports industry and do analytics for a professional team or organization.

My Background

I graduated from Monmouth University in May 2019 with a degree in Mathematics with a Concentration in Statistics and a Minor in Computer Science. After graduation, I began interning at the United States Golf Association (USGA) working with their Research, Science and Innovations team as a data analyst. I analyzed many different kinds of data and created reports from the results. One thing I analyzed was the pace of play for golfers to make sure country clubs were being efficient with their tee off times. Another was the effectiveness and reliability of turf measuring devices used in many golf championships. With the results of all of the projects, I created separate interactive reports to help summarize the data collected and clearly state the results. At the end of the summer, myself and all the interns individually presented a capstone project in front of the USGA’s Executive Board. The USGA was a great experience for me due to their great work environment and friendly staff.
