Data and Policy Summer Scholar Program Student Experiences (featuring Manish Muthukrishnan)


(upbeat music) I’m really interested in public policy and I wanted to tell stories
that are sort of rooted in public policy, so I
needed some data background that would feed into that. I had some economics
background, but I didn’t have that much of a background in R. (upbeat music) My highlight has been trying food with different people here, students from different countries here. So I took some of the Chinese students and the Indian students
and a lot of Americans for an Indian buffet that was really fun, introducing them to a different cuisine. It was a good bonding experience for us. (upbeat music) The data element and how you can incorporate that into
public policy is something that DPSS has really given me. I want to go back and
continue learning R and add Python to it. That
would be really useful in my career and the impact that I can have on my community. (upbeat music)
