Hi Nwaigbo Nnamdi

Thanks for your comments. I do agree with you that students with econometrics background may be better at statistics and the business side of things than mathematicians and physicists. Basically, everyone with the right passion and motivation can learn data science. I was only referring to the fact that physics is so versatile such that a training in physics provides strong problem-solving skills that are easily transferable to data science.
