"One of my most satisfying achievements at Purdue is my current involvement in a startup venture. The departmental leadership has been incredibly supportive throughout my transition, providing me with the freedom to maintain my engagement with my students and research staff while pursuing my industrial goals. Thanks to their support I have been able to succeed in my entrepreneurial endeavors while continuing to develop my academic career and research activities independently. I am confident that the knowledge and experience gained from my industrial experience will help me to make future research efforts at Purdue more impactful."
