Essosolim Apollinaire Abi, Kara (Togo), is a fourth year BSc Mathematics student at Ashoka University and is currently pursuing the PostGraduate Diploma in the Ashoka Scholars Program. He is also the Teaching assistant for the Probability and Statistics and Discrete Mathematics courses at Ashoka University and assists the professors to prepare and deliver lessons as well as assessing the students. Apollinaire believes that more investment of data science and AI tools is needed in identifying the causes and root level symptoms when trying to come up with solutions for societal challenges. Being somewhat of an autodidact in Data Science, he aspires to employ skills in mathematics and programming to study various observations to produce insightful, data-driven strategic recommendations. At EquiTech Futures, he hopes to be able to build on such skills with passionate and like-minded students.
