Data Analyst – we make e-books that incorporate text, images, video, and other widgets to help our customers market their products.

I figure out what design choices work to keep people interested by analyzing viewer behavior. For example, what kind of image should you include on the cover of your e-book?

I love seeing that ,my work has an impact on keeping people interested. Our customers love it too!

I typically wake up to a morning team call, and we discuss our goals and who’s working on what. I then have various meetings throughout the day as I work on my projects. Sometimes I have formal presentations to my bosses, investors, or customers.

I took many advanced statistics and data analytics classes at my high school and at Stanford University. I was first hired as an unpaid intern, then I quickly started working as a paid contractor.

I am working on getting my BS and MS in Electrical Engineering at UCLA in the Fast Track to Success program. As part of this program, I am taking honors classes and doing research with professors!

I love playing video games! My favorite of all time is probably Minecraft. I also enjoy hiking, running, playing soccer, and taking photos.
