About me: hiii :) my name is Bao Han, and I'm currently a fourth-year Interdisciplinary Honors student double majoring in statistics: data science and human evolutionary biology with a minor in bioethics. My long term goal is to work in biostatistics or health data science, but trust me when I say I had no idea I would end up here when I entered UW four years ago. It took a lot of exploring and a bit of doubt for me to eventually land on this path, but now I couldn't be happier! Through the statistics and applied math departments' mentorship programs, I've been able to gain experience in survival analysis and computational finance research. I also am a mentor myself for Mentor Power for Success, a program offered through the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity to help first year students transition to life at UW. In addition to my classes, some RSOs I'm involved with at UW include the Statistics & Probability Association, the Vietnamese Student Association, Vietnamese dance, and Chi Sigma Alpha Asian-interest sorority. In my free time, I love trying new boba shops, running, going to concerts, and romanticizing my life. I am super grateful for all the opportunities, communities, and people I've been introduced to at UW, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
