Using Greenplum to Address Housing Shortages
Senior Data Scientist at Purdue University, Ian oversees all data science efforts in the University administration. His team uses greenplum and postgres to solve a variety of problems the university faces, from what grades students get in their classes to how students navigate their curricula to whether or not they will even show up on campus. Prior to Purdue he worked as a Market Research Analyst building marketing mix models for a wide mix of clients.

With enrollment growing more quickly than our ability to house students, temporary housing [the kind seen in Buzzfeed articles and typical of early year university housing] was set to grow. In order to reduce the need for this sub-optimal housing, Purdue set about modelling housing contract follow-through to catch students that had no intention to show up on campus and give their housing slots to people in temporary housing, all before any students arrived on campus.
