Meet Mohammad Saroar Zubair

This past September Mohammad joined our Quantitative Data Analysis team. As soon as you meet Mohammad, two things are clear. First,  Mohammad's warm personality and friendliness and second, his dedication to helping with whatever challenge you might send his way. Recently we had a chance to catch up with Mohammad. Read the full interview here.
