Advice for students considering graduate programs:
If you want to do a PhD, the two most important factors for success are having a compatibleworking style with your advisor and loving your problem. You have to mesh with your advisor toget the most out of the learning/mentoring experience. You have to love your problem such thatwhen you stay up late setting up a simulation or experiment and you wake up at 6am the next
morning, you can’t wait to get back into the lab to see the results. Solving a problem that no one
 else has solved is difficult enough without also having to deal with interpersonal stress and beingbored.
Your favorite thing about SWE or a favorite SWE memory:
Being part of motivated and supportive community that was constantly striving for excellence.
Company:
Cornell University
 Job Title:
Professor & Associate Director
Hobbies:
Cooking/eating, travel, and combining the two
Advice for new grads:
If you have a BS and want to be an engineer in the workforce,
get a master’s degree – 
the return on investment is tremendous.
