I am currently a communications manager in a bioinformatics product development company in India. Sort of a business analyst role! With a masters degree in physics, I have a blended experience of research in experimental biophysics, corporate communications and academic teaching.
As a habit, not just a hobby, my recent online research reveals how influential this new [r]evolution of data science is. As mere example, only some of the CGI frames for the recent hit movie INTERSTELLAR took about a hundred hours of rendering and above 800 TB of data.
There is no talking if we touch up on the fields of particle physics (like CERN), medical & bioinformatics, clinical sciences, social media, etc. Data is going to be the new god who will metamorphize the entire landscape of our living and life on earth.
With this, I believe I am better late than never in making the switch in my career to data science. With my mathematical background and logical intuition, I believe I can make it and DSC is one of the right platforms to begin with.
