Stern Faculty Spotlight: Claudia Perlich

“As you’re approaching your career, don’t spend too much time planning because life happens in unexpected ways. Maybe you have figured this out already, but I think the skill is to create opportunities. When I say create opportunities it does not mean strategically looking to advance in a career but to do good work for a lot of people. They will remember you, and it will be useful.”

This month’s Stern Faculty Spotlight features Claudia Perlich, data scientist at Two Sigma and adjunct professor at Stern who teaches Data Science for Business (Managerial). Claudia started her career in Data Science at the IBM T.J.…

Stern Faculty Spotlight: Julian Yeo

“To me, balancing flavors is like if there’s a lot of spice, a little sugar is going to allow you to create more depth. If something is very fatty, or buttery, you need to round it out with acid. So I always think about debit and credit–now I have four different things I’m trying to balance.”

I am in Professor Dickstein’s Healthcare Markets class this semester (as well as what feels like the entire Stern Healthcare Association board).…

Stern Faculty Spotlight: Nate Pettit

“It’s not about everybody becoming a CEO. It’s about hopefully having conversations that give people the courage to be true to themselves. And then when I see people being more true to themselves, that’s where I sit back and I’m just like, ‘I’m so freaking lucky that I get to do what I do.’” -Nate Pettit

Stern Faculty Spotlight: Alison Taylor

“I have got a very long way […]  by pivoting careers and fields frequently. I think that there is a lot to be gained by seeing connections between things rather than staying in one area and just doing the same thing over and over again. Going to business school is an amazing moment to completely change your career, so I would advise people to take that possibility seriously because you don’t have endless chances to do that. Think creatively, because a sideways move might be very good for you in the long term.” – Alison Taylor
