Project Leader, Sydney
At BCG, Storytellers synthesize complex information and ideas. They believe in bringing the whole team together to get a broader perspective. Sarah finds clarity in a complex world.
The best part of working at BCG is working with amazingly committed and talented teams to solve the big challenges for our clients.
My background as a postdoctoral research scientist in astrophysics meant that I came to BCG with a great deal of experience in tackling ambiguous, complex problems. At BCG my experience is put to use every day as we work on the hard problems that our talented clients can’t solve without our help.
The breadth of projects I have worked on is incredible and provides me with the right level of challenge while working with talented teams who are committed to delivering real impact for our clients. I get the support I need to make it happen. I work at 80% capacity, which allows me more time to focus on my young family, and I carry as much weight as my peers who work 100%.
Sarah holds a PhD in astrophysics from the University of Chicago and graduated with highest honors from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s in physics. Prior to joining BCG, Sarah was supported by a US National Science Foundation Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellowship, leading teams in image processing and big data analysis for a next-generation cosmology experiment.
