In grad school I had two specializations. The first was networking and the second
signal processing. Networking was my stronger focus at first but working in the DSP
group I was determined to make algorithms that could be game changing.
I spent many years collecting data, running the data through simulations,
and doing analysis of my algorithms. The recent development of data sceince as a highly
desired profession sparked my interest in refreshing my data skills. In addition
to reading books, I have taken a decent amount of online classes and short courses.
Working at Medlytix I was able to do a lot of work on data processing pipelines for batch processes.
Maybe all of this will lead to something great, but for the time being I plan on trying
to keep my algorithm skills up to date.
