Pragati Prasad, 2nd Year EPI MPH Student

I have been a Graduate Research Assistant for Dr. Samuel Jenness at the Rollins School of Public Health for the past year and a half. Working on the ART-Net study, I was in charge of the entire data management pipeline: managing emails from survey participants, merging survey data, missing data imputation, and creating derived variables.

At EmoryEPI, I’ve learned: There is always more than one way to do something. Because of this, it is vital to understand *why* we chose the approach we end up going with, as it informs how the data can be interpreted for every analysis afterwards.

My favorite part of my EmoryEPI experience: Being responsible for data that is currently used for various projects – and will continue to be – made me aware of how important it was to always provide high quality work.

A good and resourceful supervisor can show you how to manage yourself.
