What attracted you to the Ti:ger program?
I have always been interested in technological innovation and, switching from an engineering career to a legal one, the TI:GER program provides an opportunity to learn and work where engineering, science, and law meet.
What do you hope to gain from your experience in the Ti:ger program?
I hope to further develop my business and entrepreneurial skills. I have had my best experiences in education and professionally when working with a diverse team, so the chance to work with a team made of students and professionals in law, business, and technology was too good to pass up. Combined with my interest in the startup process, the TI:GER program allows me to bring it all together.
What are your plans for employment after graduation?
I’m planning on working in intellectual property or patent law after graduation. I hope that, after gaining more experience, I can transition to working more closely with technology-based startup companies.
What inspired you to pursue a career in law?
I worked in software for almost 3 years and I decided I wasn’t in the career that I wanted. After evaluating a lot of options, I decided that pursuing a career in law would give me the best options to explore my interests in startups while also using my logic and problem-solving skills from my engineering background in a new context.
