Michael Pauleen completed his undergraduate degree at Northwestern University, graduating magna cum laude in 2017 with a B.S. in Industrial Engineering. Through his coursework in machine learning and data mining, Michael discovered his interest in data analytics for its utility in solving business problems. Outside of class, he was a highly involved member of the Northwestern Sailing Team, spending most of his weekends racing around the Midwest and nationally.

This past summer, Michael worked as a data scientist for Allstate’s research division. He discovered the power of deep-learning methods as he developed neural networks for instance segmentation of vehicles to help automatically detect damage and claim severity.

Michael is excited to continue at Northwestern in the MSiA program to further his education in data science techniques and applications. He looks forward to applying these analytical tools to tackle real-world business issues.
