  Message from Graduate Jo Gyu-dong

Jo Gyu-dong

I am Jo Gyu-dong who has enrolled the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science in 2001.

I love numbers, so I started studying statistics. At first, the subject of statistics was very difficult, but the more I learned, the more interesting it came to me. You must have heard a lot about data mining and big data. As information becomes more important, statistics are becoming more and more important, and it is becoming the most needed discipline in society.

After graduating from undergraduate school, I completed my master's and doctoral degrees in statistics, and I am currently working as a researcher at the Horse Industry Research Institute of Korea Racing Authority. I am in charge of the planning of horse industry statistics and surveys in accordance with the Horse Industry Promotion Act. The horse industry encompasses a variety of industries, such as horse production and breeding and horseback riding services. I am researching the various indicators of the horse industry to reflect them in the horse industry policy.

Statistics is one of the disciplines required by society, and I believe that it can be further developed by combining it with other disciplines such as business administration, economics, and computer science.
