Meet 2021 Scholarship Recipients Jagmehr Madan and Kristine Stedman

We are thrilled to announce two more of our 2021 MinneAnalytics Scholarship recipients: Jagmehr Madan of University of Minnesota – Twin Cities and Kristine Stedman of University of Northwestern – St. Paul. Each student selected has displayed a passion for pursuing a career related to data science and a commitment to engaging with the community.

Jagmehr Madan is a rising senior studying industrial and systems engineering at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. He is interested in the intersection of data science, IoT, and energy. His work in data analytics has included helping a Minneapolis healthcare startup build choropleth and heat maps for future market opportunities, creating data pipelines to query and transfer application metrics at a large bank, and developing a database for net transportation costs for a Fortune 10 company. Jagmehr is also passionate about entrepreneurship and meeting innovative people. On campus, Jagmehr co-heads Atland Ventures, a student-run venture capital firm that invests in Gen Z startups across the country, and is in charge of professional development at University of Minnesota’s Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineering branch. In his free time, Jagmehr enjoys playing basketball, watching sports with his friends, trying new coffee shops, learning about new visualization packages in Python, brushing up on his SQL skills, or working on his new podcast Jag of All Trades.

Kristine Stedman is a senior at University of Northwestern, St. Paul double-majoring in data analytics and marketing. She is heavily involved on campus through her role as social media assistant for the marketing department, her ministry partner role in residence life, and her leadership of the UNW swing dancing club. “I have enjoyed the insight that the data analytics professors have poured into me these past 3 years, and I am looking forward to finding a position that incorporates both majors in an area such as SEO or digital marketing analysis,” said Kristine. “Learning how to work with data in many different forms is a skill that will translate in almost every job and I am looking forward to further pursuing that skill with the knowledge I have learned through UNW’s data analytics program.”

Congratulations Jagmehr and Kristine! We look forward to announcing more of our 2021 recipients in the coming months.  Learn more→
