MAB grad Sandra Oluoch (‘20) is a scientific data engineer with the Allen Institute in Seattle, WA. She was drawn to the MAB program by a desire to transition from more traditional lab research to computational analysis. “[The program] gave me the skills I needed to network and break into a different career field,” she says. “The internship requirement helped me get my foot in the door in this field.”
Sandra was drawn to the MAB program by a desire to transition her career.
I wanted to switch from wet lab research to a more computational analysis while still working within the bioengineering field.
She also appreciated the program’s flexibility and emphasis on real-world applications.
Sandra was particularly drawn to the small cohort size, which allowed her to make connections within the program. She also highlights the capstone project, which allows students to apply what they have learned in the program to real-world challenges.
Sandra credits the MAB program with helping her successfully transition her career from laboratory science to data science. “[The program] gave me the skills I needed to network and break into a different career field.”
