“I have degrees from UIC in mathematics, philosophy, and operations research. In 2013 I earned my PhD in statistics. For the last 6 years I’ve worked in Chicago’s tech industry as a data scientist and architect. I currently work for IBM. I don’t need this job, but to whom much has been given, much is required.”
