About Afia

Most of the friends and acquaintances I met during my undergraduate studies often remarked how great I was at explaining things to them. That motivated me to apply for the teaching assistant role at the department of statistics at my alma mater. Since that time (August, 2007) I have held 2 teaching assistants roles domestically and internationally. My academic background is in Statistics, Operations Research and Computer Science. My work experiences include a research and development internship, a statistical internship, and a couple of analyst roles. Additionally, I have worked in the hospitality industry.
