After taking 4th place last year in the undergraduate competition, my team and I won the graduate student competition. There are two primary reasons I think we won.

  1. Our results were made interactive and viewable online. You can find them here.
  2. Our results were actionable. We actually largely ignored the suggestions of what to cover by the competition organizers, beause all the other team would likely cover that as well and instead focused on giving results that would be most useful to making decisions.

My team was really great! From left to right there is me, Sheel Dey, Chinmay Phulse, and Josiah Coad.
