Melvin S. Munsaka’s father, a former teacher turned pastor, often hinted to him about medical school, but Munsaka was drawn to mathematics and science and eventually pursued mathematics at the University of Zambia. It was in graduate school that he switched his major to statistics and probability and was awarded a Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship to complete his MSc at McGill. Since then, Munsaka has worked for STATPROBE, Takeda Pharmaceuticals (where he received three of the company’s prestigious awards), and AbbVie.
