I went to the United States as an exchange student for two years as an undergraduate, because the experience of these two years made me interested in computer science, especially machine learning. I chose Business Analytics as my postgraduate major as it is a discipline that analyses business data using Big Data and Machine Learning. Therefore, I became interested in the application of technology in the business field. After graduating, I worked as a software engineer and information management, because these work experiences made me interested in how technology works with humans and wanted to learn more about this field.
