Professor Sander is an adjunct who teaches introductory classes on analytics, which is many students' first introduction to Excel as a business tool. He started his teaching days after he earned his MBA, with the encouragement of his professors. For the last 10 years, he has worked in the Financial Planning & Analysis department of several Bay Area startups, helping them improve their budgeting, forecasting, and reporting capabilities, and dealing firsthand with all the frustrations that Excel can provide. Before pursuing his graduate studies, he worked as a data analyst for a research lab.

Professor Sander brings an eclectic mix of experience to his classroom, having co-authored a paper on spreadsheet design philosophy, a law review article on intellectual property, and a poster on distance estimation of spoken words.
