Abstract: K13.00002 : Transitioning from Physics into the Data World*
3:36 PM–4:12 PM
In this talk, I will cover some career options for physicists interested in transitioning to the data industry. I will start by describing technical as well as soft skills required for successfully switching fields, and how acquiring them made a difference in my career. Finally, I will end with some interesting projects I’ve worked on during my various roles in Data Science, DataOps and Analytics Engineering, and the value my research background brought to them. A Q&A session will follow.
