Claire Bai to earn her Master of Science in Applied Biostatistics and Epidemiology in summer 2022.

Why did you choose to pursue your degree?

I was really interested in the statistical and data analysis aspects of epidemiology, and was also curious about pursuing academic research and writing a thesis.

What’s one of your favorite memories from your program?

I didn’t expect to be involved in a student organization, but joining the board of our Graduate Society of Biostatistics and Epidemiology (GSBE) led me to meet so many new peers within and outside [the Department], and also participate in meetings with students and faculty to better understand and work on attaining our Department’s needs.

What do you look forward to in your career path?

I’m so excited to be working in a field full of professionals who I admire and know I will always be learning from in the future. Doing my master’s has given me several opportunities to explore the different subfields of epidemiology and biostatistics, and I can’t wait to see where I’ll be 10 years from now.
