Laura Winger graduated with an MS in Management Science and Engineering program. Before coming to Columbia, she spent two years working as a reservoir engineer at Royal Dutch Shell. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Queen's University in Canada.
Meaningful client engagement is a key element of the MS&E Operations Consulting class. Laura works as a part time consultant on a team of eight students for two clients: the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and BTQ Financial. She continues to enjoy the blend of analytical rigor (deterministic and stochastic models) and tangible consulting experience provided by the program.
Laura is excited at the prospect of applying modern data science techniques for insight in the energy industry.
