Desiderio Pilla Master of Science in Data Science student collects awards

Mr. Desi Pilla finished his MS in Data Science at UD over the 2020 calendar year–what a time to do your MS in one year!

Desi completed his MSDS summa cum laude. He completed his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering summa cum laude in December 2019, with minors in both Physics and Mathematics. He found an internship for the summer of 2020 at Viacom CBS, where he helped develop and implement an app for their internal use. He became quite adept at the AWS tools and Slack for this purpose. He also had internships at DuPont and at Gore, and was a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Mechanical Engineering for three years.

He begins his position as a Strategic Business Analyst at JP Morgan Chase’s Innovation Center in northern Delaware. He will be working on improving handling of internal and external complaints. We are sure that he will make good use of the concepts and skills that he learned at UD and his internships in his new workplace.

Congratulations Desi!
