Student Story: Emily Kaar, UC Davis
“UCDC allowed me to grow—it made me a more polished and capable young professional. Through my internship with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), I learned that I want to pursue a career as an analyst. I now know more than any person needs to know about small (general aviation) airplanes, and discovered that safety data matters. I’ve always been passionate about data and through this internship, I provided public service with my data and coding skills. I know that my analysis will help keep people safe and that's worth all of the hard work.”
Emily Kaar is a recent graduate and double major in Mathematical Analysis and Operations Research and Economics from UC Davis. This past spring, she interned at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) where she analyzed a probabilistic risk model identifying causes of aviation accidents—which included reading records, coding metric dashboards, and analyzing data reports.
