Message from the Director

Paul Anderson

Paul E. Anderson
Director, Data Science

"Simply put, Data Science is where computer science and statistics come together to shape the future through data. A data scientist is creative, breaks traditional academic boundaries, and sees the power of knowledge discovery through data. Data scientists are becoming indispensable in almost every discipline and company. They can be found driving some of the most exciting technological advancements at companies from Google to Facebook, when they aren't working with scientists to find the cure for cancer or stopping global warming."
