“Since high school, I’ve always had an interest in solving problems like math, puzzles, etc. Choosing the MPH in biostatistics allowed me to combine biomedical science, mathematics and statistics.

“Another reason is that biostatistics is always on the list of the top master’s degrees for job prospects.

“I choose Oregon State University to pursue my master’s degree in biostatistics because of the state’s environmental beauty and the school’s prestige.”
