Mr. Quant Coder Quant

About Me:

Greetings! I studied theoretical math as an undergrad then transitioned to the real world, having started and stayed in the data space my entire career. I worked as a data analyst for a startup after undergrad, before going back to school next year for an MS in applied stats, after which I’ve worked as a data scientist or data engineer ever since.

I also humbly ask for any additional resources to aid me in prepping for b-school (currently studying for the GMAT that I’m scheduled to take in July and have never taken it before).
