Nathaniel Brown, BS 2018

How has being a Statistical Science graduate from Duke help shape you personally and/or professionally?

"My day-to-day work involves running experiments to improve Oracle Data Cloud's measurement products, and documenting the results in a markdown file. The Duke Statistical Science courses that best prepared me for this career were STA 210 (Regression Analysis), STA 440 (Case Studies), and STA 521 (Predictive Modeling and Statistical Learning)."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Statistical Science programs?

"Take a databases course as an elective and learn SQL."
