What was your favourite memory in UCC?

Group study, last minute assignment submissions, good networking events with fellow batchmates from different backgrounds were few of my favourite memories.

How did your time at UCC help you to get to where you are now?

Good career and placement office at UCC, references from professors and very relevant final semester thesis helped me get to where I am now.

What is your advice to current UCC students? What person/people at UCC had the most positive influence on you? 

My advice would be to make friends, grow your community while still at college and contribute to the society. 

Michael Cronin from the school of mathematical sciences had the most positive impact as he was able to relate theory with practical applications in the data science industry

Were you involved in any Clubs or Societies?

Yes, I was involved in Cork Simon Community.

What are you currently working on?
