Be curious.

What do you do?

A researcher interested in cloud computing and machine learning

Why did you choose this field?

I was always interested in computer science and right now it’s an exciting time as one can remotely own a powerful computer and do whatever they want. I hope the work I do helps someone with less resources (money,etc) still avail whatever they need, compute wise

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

I have realized at least in computer science, I didnt have to wait for a phd to start researching. You can start whereever you are.

Why do you love working in STEM?

I like the possibility of my research actually making new products which people will use

Best advice for next generation?

Be curious. Its cliched, but if you want to discover something and want to look under the hood of things, you have to be curious. Keep asking your questions and try to get the answer from others or get them yourself.
