My name is Tad, and I am a senior who is interested in data analytics and economics. Starting today, I began interning at &pizza Headquarters with Darien Bates (Head of Data and Guest Experience) and his team. In the past, I have used traffic analytics to redesign my high school’s carpool arrangement, conducted sports analytics for the University of Maryland softball program, and participated in an image analytics project with the George Mason University graduate data analytics program. I am excited to now explore analytics in the business world over the next two months!
While much of what I will be doing depends on the needs of &pizza, I have been working to learn new skills to prepare. Recently, I have been learning Structured Query Language (SQL) and have taken advantage of a brief crash course on email marketing campaigns. I have discussed potential projects with Darien, like exploring factors that impact and reflect changing customer value and loyalty at &pizza, examining the design and success of &pizza’s email marketing campaigns, and conditioning and analyzing data in &pizza’s cloud and databases.
Whether it’s navigating &pizza and the use of data science in the business world or the Washington Metro system during my commute (D.C. traffic is truly something else!), I can’t wait to see what is in store!
With excitement & curiosity,
