Through my studies, I've had the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from domain experts in the field.
Using the MSc to shift careers, Peter is studying an MSc (Computer Science) with an interest in bioinformatics, and has been offered a position in the field before graduating.
For some time, I've been interested in applying my skills to problems that can really help people, particularly by applying the relatively recent fields of machine learning, AI, and big data techniques to problems such as the analysis of the human genome.
Through my studies, I've had the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from domain experts in the field. Their passion, knowledge, and drive has been contagious. I feel that I am part of a community of like-minded people who are always there to help and motivate.
I was recently offered a position at the VLSCI (Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative) while finishing my MSc part time. I'm looking forward to establishing my career in this area and applying my newly acquired skills to interesting and worthwhile problems, by learning from and contributing to the latest research as a part of a motivated and inspiring community of researchers.
