After getting data, I need to complete data entry and cleaning tasks. And then my main work is to conduct data analyses by using Excel and R studio. Most importantly, I also presented findings through written reports and graphical representation.

Impactful faculty mentorship: 

I am so luck to have Adam Bransum as my advisor. He is a respectable gentleman. He is so patient and kind when I ask him for help. He helped me keep on track all the time. Talking to him helped clear my mind and lift my spirit.
