As a consultant, I have worked in problem solving in a business context. Although the context is different, my work at CMU prepared me well for day-to-day work. As with computational biology research, often multiple iterations are required to derive a solution acceptable to all parties involved. Similarly, the themes of the scientific process – generating a hypothesis, testing, and correcting the hypothesis – carry over from research to consulting.
