Asmita Karandikar

Class of 2008


I graduated from UC Berkeley with a BS in IEOR in 2008. After deciding to continue studying the field, I pursued a MS at Stanford University and graduated in June 2009. My coursework at Berkeley sparked my interest in Decision and Risk Analysis, the field I concentrated in while at Stanford. While in school, I had the opportunity to complete two internships which required me to use skills gained from my IEOR classes at Finelite, I determined process enhancements in order to increase productivity and reduce material waste. At PG&E, I used statistics to study the accuracy of electricity load forecasts in the face of changing energy scheduling requirements. In September 2009, I will put to use the quantitative and analytical skills I gained while in school when I join ZS Associates as an Operations Research Analyst.
