What first inspired you to work in your field?

While in high school, I participated in an internship, which looked at public policy and its impact at the community level. Although most of the data was qualitative, I would try to find an approach to quantitate these values. This experience taught me how people respond to numbers and how important it is to accurately represent them, thus why my undergraduate degree is in Statistics. Process improvement and quality control inspired the pursuit of a master’s degree, where I hope to take an economical approach to looking at the benefits of co-firing coal power plants with biomass.
