Jennifer Yoon Bio

I am a Data Scientist with an interest in statistics, natural and social sciences, and the financial industry. I have an MBA from the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business, and was certified as an FRM (Financial Risk Manager) by GARP (Global Association of Risk Professionals). I have a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College with a major in economics and minors in physics and music. I graduated with high honors in economics based on my research project & senior thesis, Innovation in the Computer Industry: with Case Studies.
