Meet the Interns – Alejandro Michel

One of Infotech Consulting’s Summer 2020 Interns, Alejando Michel, sat down to answer a couple of critical questions about his academic interests, his internship expectations, and his desired superpower. Check out this interview to get a glimpse of the next generation.

What university are you attending and what is your area of study?
University: Florida State University 
Major: Statistics

What drew you to that area of study?
The ability to challenge claims, gain foresight with the uncertainty of future events and combine it with other fields like computer vision or speech recognition.

What has been your favorite course outside of your area of study?
Excluding other technical fields, I really enjoy learning other languages.  In addition to perceiving new ideas, it helps create instant bonds with diverse people. I like to think of math/stats as a universal language. 

What are you hoping to gain, learn, or experience during your Infotech Consulting internship?
I’m looking forward to helping the consulting team with data management and analysis while at the same time increasing my skillset to include econometric modeling. I think the ability to explain results will help deepen my understanding of these concepts, especially in a  litigation setting. Additionally, I’m excited to exchange ideas with the other interns as well.

Do you have any pets? What kind and what are their names?
One puppy, her name is Lola and she is a toy poodle!

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
I would like the ability to draw a perfect circle, because why not?

Share a fun fact about yourself.
I went to an entire school year where I would wake up at 3:00 am and sleep at 6:00 pm. This allowed me to run twice a day on a busy schedule. Nowadays I have more control over my schedule, but I’m still very much an early bird.
