Zenia Zheng, BS 2015

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

"Gave me practical data and critical thinking skills that are highly demanded but difficult to find in industry. More important than coding, analyzing, and modeling is the thought process and interpretation/communication of the data. This is extremely important in business contexts."

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

"An undergraduate stat degree isn't enough to turn you into a "data scientist". Decide if hard core data science is the path you want to pursue. If not, find something you are interested in and apply what you have learned in the statistics program. The principles behind statistics can literally be applied to anything."
