While alumnus Eric Langowski was at IU, he became interested in government and public policy through IU Student Government. At the same time, he became frustrated with the way the world was unfolding and became conscious of the need for politicians to make better use of data as a tool to solve problems.
When he graduated in 2018, Eric was looking for careers that would allow him to apply his skills in math and physics while positively impacting government structures, systems, and policies. In this episode, he shares what he’s done so far and what he’s learned along the way. He also talks about his move to Chicago and how important it is to get a wide variety of experiences as a young professional.
