Tao Yan is confident he has what it takes to become a data scientist or an academic in mathematics.
Bachelor of Science (Mathematics)
I relish my time as a student because I know that once you enter the work force it’s likely to be a little more intensive and stressful.
I like to think that I’m pretty good at maths and I appreciate the different point of view of the world that it provides.
I chose to study mathematics at RMIT because it has a good reputation overseas and offers practical experiences within the program structure.
I am a self-disciplined and organised person by nature and thrive on learning new techniques in mathematics, such as analytics. I particularly enjoyed the course, Linear Models and Experiment Design because it provided useful and up-to-date modelling methods that are widely used in the field of analytics.
I relish my time as a student because I know that once you enter the work force it’s likely to be a little more intensive and stressful. I’m doing my best to take advantage of RMIT’s industry connections and to ensure that I acquire the professional skills needed to succeed.
After completing honours, I’d like to work for a couple of years as a data scientist in a research setting before I commit to further study – perhaps a PhD.
I am diligent, calm and confident and I love what I do because it has potential to take me places I haven’t even dreamed of yet.
