Harvard Summer School

by Kazuma Nakano こんにちは!東京大学教養学部3年の中野和磨と申します。 今夏FUTIの奨学金をいただき、ハーバードサマースクール Harvard Summer School (HSS)に参加させていただきました。この場を借りて、改めて心からの感謝の言葉を申し上げます。 HSSではデーター分析の授業を取ることができました。東京大学での専攻とは全く違う分野ですが、自分の大好きな野球に繋がることを期待して、挑戦してみました。授業の参加者の大半は社会人や院生だったので、レベルが非常に高く、最初は戸惑いましたが、貴重な経験となりました。プログラミングランゲージのRを学びつつ、分析理論を習得することができました。日本に帰国後、このスキルを生かして、プロ野球のデータを分析するインターンシップに挑戦したいと思います。 ボストンでは観光をたくさんしました。一番印象的だったのは五日間かけて、カナダのモントリオールまで自転車の旅をしたことです。バーモント州のLake Champlainやアメリカ・カナダの国境を超えたのが一番印象的でした。
