This work involved algorithms, data, and modeling via quantum simulations. I saw an exciting opportunity to plant my feet firmly on unfamiliar ground in interdisciplinary artificial intelligence, which led me to spend 3+ years as a senior data scientist and managing AI consultant before joining Bain as a senior manager.
