Amy Yu

Always hungry, sometimes foolish.

I am VP of Product Strategy in the Data & Decision Sciences group at Paramount, where I lead the design and development of platforms that enable data-driven decisions across all of Paramount’s portfolio brands.

I graduated from the Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology at the University of Pennsylvania with a joint B.S. in Computer Science and Economics. I completed my M.S. at MIT Media Lab, where I was advised by César Hidalgo as part of the Macro Connections group. My research focused on utilizing digital data to create visual engines for understanding social phenomena and informing decisions that affect innovation, business, and public policy.
