Owen Huang
Guangdong, China

I am very passionate about the intersection of marketing and data science. Coming from a marketing undergraduate program, I worked as a data analyst for growth marketing at before coming to Tepper. Here at Tepper, I've gained a great deal of interest in using analytics tools to drive user insights that inform marketing decision-making.

I am a photographer and I've been to 14 countries. I was once an Airbnb Experience Organizer hosting a cultural tour that catered to 60+ international backpackers. I love cultural exchange and understand how cultural diversity shapes our work efficiency and dynamics.

Olivia Dion
Vermont, USA

I'm a Vermont native and recent graduate from Kenyon College where I attained my Bachelor of Arts degree. I am also currently working part-time as a data analyst intern at an insurance tech startup based in Vermont. I decided to pursue my MSBA at Tepper because of my desire to enter the field and the strength of Tepper's curriculum.

When I'm not working or studying, I enjoy being active and spending my time outside running, hiking, or skiing. I have recently joined the Tepper Outdoor Adventure Club to meet others with the same interests. I am an outgoing and confident individual who is always happy to help others.

Jay Shah
Mumbai, India

I am a soccer fanatic and a huge Lewis Hamilton (Formula 1 racer) fan. I love to take up challenges and test my problem-solving skills.

I completed my bachelor's degree in computer engineering from the University of Mumbai. Following that, I worked at Deloitte as a digital consulting associate.

I have always been a person who loves interacting with new people and would love to help potential candidates during their application process since I was in their shoes just a year ago.
