This series features our students’ reflections on their aspirations, learnings, challenges, and joys.

There is often a desire to create something novel from scratch. We try to reinvent the wheel, when simply merging information that’s already out there in novel ways would do the trick.

There is an understandable disconnect between people who do research and people who could potentially use it to make an impact on a broader scale. My goal is to become an intermediary who can straddle the worlds of industry and academia.
