Q&A with Statistics Undergraduate Pioneer Tessa Johnson ’17

Mar 19, 2018
"To me, the best part of being a statistician is the amount of interaction I get to have with people in other fields. I love learning, and I'm equally as interested in literature as I am astrophysics -- and statistics is the perfect field for that. It is not uncommon for statisticians with be working on multiple projects in multiple fields. Essentially, any field that produces data (which is basically every field) has opportunities for statisticians to get involved."
