Daniel's academic and career aspirations lie in the field of Computer Engineering. His specific area of interest is a convergence of the Internet of Things, Cybersecurity, and Data Analytics.
The Big Data questions that we can and will be able to answer must have reliable systems and protocols so that our people and society can utilize the best products, services, and institutions. Such a large undertaking requires a large number of innovators and investors worldwide. While no one person will be responsible for the success of the Internet of Things, there is an exciting opportunity to make significant contributions to this progress.
Thus, Daniel has chosen to pursue an engineering background, study abroad, take on research and industry internships, join undergraduate research projects, and network with organizations and individuals so he can become the right fit for this massive effort. He will pursue a graduate degree and internships abroad upon graduation.
Ultimately, Daniel wants to make an impact, fulfill his potential, and enable others to do the same as a way of thanking those who enabled him.
