Christopher Rink (BS 2013)

I graduated from the Statistics BS program in May of 2013. I moved up to Madison, Wisconsin in July and started working as Business Intelligence Developer for Epic (the electronic medical record vendor). The end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 have been filled with plenty of interesting and new challenges. Working for Epic presents with new experiences and problems every day which I am forced to think creatively to solve. Additionally, having grown up in warm summer climes, I have had to adapt to the harsh, snowy winters in Wisconsin in a pinch.

Harji Patel (MS 1969)

I retired in 2003 from my last job of teaching Biostatistics at Georgia Southern University. Prior to this I worked as a biostatistician for the various pharmaceutical companies in New Jersey, mainly in the field of clinical trials. During retirement, I spend most of my time in spiritual activities and try to remain healthy. All our children are independent and have their families.
