I started out in biomedical science, not electrical engineering. I realized I’m much more interested in medical technology than medicine, where it can take 20 years for a new medication to become available. I’m now investing in getting my technical skills up to speed. One of the projects I did was working on an antenna for a square kilometer array in Australia, an extraordinary astronomical application. Right now, I’m working on an antenna for a device that monitors body functions, and I’m enjoying the medical side of electrical engineering very much.
When I graduate, I’d like to work in industry on bringing innovations to market quickly. Something with the kind of speed and teamwork that I really enjoy. But I might do a PhD first. Either way, new developments and new technologies are how you keep challenging yourself.
