From Cleanroom to Boardroom: Applying Physics and Materials Science Insights for Strategic Business Decisions”
In this talk, I’ll take the audience through the twists and turns of my professional journey—starting from navigating the world of physics grad school to leading a business team in the electronic and semiconductor manufacturing space. We’ll kick things off with a quick dive into my academic research acivities at UNC and how they connect with my technical experiences at PulseForge. I’ll share insights into how my technical know-how paved the way for technical leadership roles and, eventually, broader strategic leadership responsibilities within my organization. I’ll give the audience a glimpse into what a “regular” day for somebody in a technical sales and commercialization role looks like. As we wrap up, I’ll shed light on how grad school acted as a launchpad for my current role, sprinkled with a few things I wish I knew back then.
