Abstract: I will discuss the field of analytics, the necessary skills, and my experience transitioning from an academic environment to working with real world data. Additionally, I will provide two examples of projects I have completed and provide insight into analytical techniques that were applied. 

Bio: I am a graduate of Wake Forest University with a B.S. in Mathematical Economics ('15), and North Carolina State University with a M.S. in Analytics ('16). I have spent several summers working at SAS, and am currently working in a data science role at Accenture Federal Services dealing with a wide range of problems ranging from programming business logic to implementing machine learning algorithms.
