Hello all! I've been lurking for a few months, absorbing lots of good info. I'm nineteen years old, live in the US, and study industrial engineering in university. Find IM pretty interesting but have not had the time to commit to building a project due to studies. My sister works for a digital ad agency and manages accounts for companies that spend x,xxx-xx,xxx in ppc every month: that's what first got me interested in the industry. Ultimately, in my career I would like to go into big data and its applications in operations research. I do have some insight into optimization of processes, economic analysis, etc. and would be happy to offer my newbie perspective to some hardened IMers if they're seeking a fresh view. I look forward to getting to know some of the members here, and taking on a project at some point in the future.
