Associate, Research / Coffee Connoisseur

My name is Jared Jorim O. Mendoza. You can call me Jared. I got my bachelor and master’s degree in Statistics in the University of the Philippines Los Baños where I have also been teaching for almost 10 years now. I love learning new methods in Statistics and I enjoy exploring different statistical softwares. In my spare time, I love watching movies and TV series.

Who is someone you admire?
Elizabeth Harmon although she’s a fictional character in the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit. I really admire her character and her story of how she became the world’s greatest chess player despite all the problems she encountered in her life.

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be…
Being able to travel into outer space in the speed of light. Maybe through this power I will be able to know if there are other life forms outside our planet.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is…
Learn from your mistakes so that you’ll never repeat them.

What is your most significant accomplishment as a professional?
Earning my master’s degree. Taking further studies after college is something I really didn’t expect to do.
