Colloquium – Azadeh Keivani – Horizontal Growth: Transitioning from Academia to Industry

November 9 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Speaker: Azadeh Keivani (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center)

Title: Horizontal Growth: Transitioning from Academia to Industry

Abstract:

Transitioning from academia to industry provides a great opportunity for a physicist to develop new skills while utilizing the previously acquired knowledge and skills. The industry can also hugely benefit from the unique perspective a physicist possesses. While several benefits come with this transition, there are also costs that one needs to carefully examine before making a decision. In this talk, I will discuss my experiences since leaving academia, as well as all the variables I took into account before deciding to begin my career outside of academia.
