About Me

Hi! My name is Luke Andreesen, and I'm a 3rd year student at the University of Chicago. I'm pursuing a double major in Computer Science (B.S.) and Economics (B.A.), and am fascinated by the intersection of the two fields. I've enjoyed a variety of experiences that allow me to pursue these passions, ranging from investment analyst roles to software engineering roles. Currenty, I find myself in the middle of this spectrum as a data science intern at a private equity firm, where I build technology to place deal-sourcing data in the hands of analysts.

I'm extremely passionate about emerging technology, particularly quantum computing, which I researched last summmer at QuMatrix where I utilized technology such as IBM Qiskit to develop quantum algorithms.

Outside of school and work, I enjoy automating things around my house. Most recently, I built a cloud-based automated plant care system, teaching myself the fundamentals of circuitry, electrical engineering, and robotics along the way. I also enjoy rock climbing (pictured to the left). I'm an active member of the UChicago climbing team, and love to compete in competitions throughout the midwest.

Cancer Incidence Rates vs. Wealth Research Study

R, Data Analysis

I conducted an extensive research project examining the relationship between cancer incidence rates and wealth, seeking to fill significant gaps in research on the topic. I analyzed incidence rates of cancer across 39 sites on human body, across 189 countries. I compared this data to various measures of wealth across these countries, including GDP and GNI using linear regression statistical analysis. The full 30-page paper, along with all code and data, can be found below.
