Tell us about your Berkeley IEOR experience. What were some of the best memories you had here?
My best memories have been late study nights with classmates! Dear friends have been made in the depths of the engineering library.
Why did you choose Berkeley IEOR?
I chose IEOR because of its ability to apply all my favorite classes to industries I care about. I learned how complex mathematical theorems can improve the efficiency and equity of systems like healthcare and energy.
What was your favorite IEOR class and why?
IEOR 151, Service Operations Design and Analysis, was my favorite class because of its focus on the experiences of the individuals within the industries we study. Learning how to optimize efforts of service workers or reduce waiting times of medical patients brought a personal touch to already fascinating algorithms.
What are your post-graduation plans? How do you see your skills from IEOR being used in the future?
I will be continuing my studies for another year after graduation through the IEOR MS program here at Berkeley! I am so excited to further my education in this field and in this department. I cannot thank IEOR faculty enough for supporting me in my academic career and hope to use my education to create more equitable and sustainable outcomes within large-scale industries.
What advice do you have for younger IEOR students?
Get to know your peers and professors as much as possible! IEOR has surrounded with me with some of the most intelligent yet friendly individuals I have ever met. There is so much to learn from the people in this department.
