What’s the one thing we should know about you?

I wish to experience many new and challenging situations in my life. As such, it is quite hard to get on my nerves since I believe there is something meaningful to take away from most people.

Why did you choose your particular course of study?

The big data revolution is fascinating to me and I wish to learn the tricks behind bridging business and data science. I believe the data age can bring many improvements even to our mundane lives and I wish to learn to capitalize on technology’s potential.

What do you hope to gain from your time at CEU?

I am excited to live in the epicenter of Central and Eastern European heritage and to meet the people who are changing the working landscape across the entire European continent. I hope to come out of CEU with lifelong friends, travel experiences and great exposure to the data analytics world.
