What brought you to the CTG UAlbany?

I am currently a part-time scholar in the NYS Data Strategy project in which we collect data from several data informants in the state agencies and use them to craft a statewide data strategy.

What did you do prior to coming to CTG UAlbany?

Since fall 2014, I have been a PhD student in the Information Science department and at this point, I am pursuing my research on Open Data Ecosystem.

What are your plans/goals for the future?

Upon completing my PhD, I am looking to find a job through which I would have an impact on people’s lives. But first, I should find a full-time job as I will be in the job market soon.

How can CTG UAlbany help you reach your goal for the future?

I am learning a lot about the state of the Information Technology (IT) and IT governance in the NYS government agencies, and I am extending my professional network through project meetings. I think both are adding to my capacity and can help me with a more successful placement and a more successful career in the future.
