I am currently pursuing my Master’s in Applied Data-Science at IUPUI. In my senior year of Undergraduate, I got the opportunity to study subjects like Machine Learning and Data Analytics which got me interested in the Data-Science Field. Furthermore, I got to explore machine learning more in my Undergraduate Final year Project. I aspire to be a successful Data-Scientist in future. I am happy to be a part of the IUPUI community because I think IUPUI is a very lively university with great diversity due to which everyone feels home.

Advise to new students: IUPUI is a wonderful university with great education and the professors are so great and helpful. Be focused and achieve your goals. Do not forget to have fun during your time at IUPUI, explore the university and the different elements to it as much as you can.
