MCS Alumni Profile: Andrew Pearson

Posted on February 15th, 2017 by

Tell us about yourself.

I graduated from Gustavus in 2015 with degrees in Mathematics and Physics. I am currently working as a Medica Health Insurance – Sr. Business Informatics Analyst

How did the MCS department help you get where you are today?

It taught me how to read, manipulate, and understand data sets. Using logic to mold data into a useful form can simplify data integration and analytics. Also I used examples from projects and papers from both Modeling and Applied Statistics classes to help job interviewers and colleagues understand the types of work that keep me interested.

What is your favorite memory or memories of the MCS department?

End of Semester Projects/Papers in MCS242/MCS241/J-Term Modeling

Anything else you would like to add or mention?

Hope all is well with the staff!  I certainly miss that 3rd Floor Olin computer lab.
