Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss my journey of transitioning from a condensed matter theorist to a Machine Learning engineer. In particular, I will share which relevant skills I learned at UIUC, and how to leverage your physics degree. I will also shed some light on how similar and different the two fields are, on what a day in a life as a Machine Learning engineer looks like, and much more.
