UConn MBA Ambassador

I am a strategic achiever, always driving for excellence. I have a Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Chemical Engineering focused on Numerical Modeling from University of Minnesota. After graduation, I worked as a Senior Process Engineer supporting customer accounts for Applied Materials, Inc., a global leader in the Semiconductor industry, at the Albany, New York office. I was in charge of leading project teams to solve customer’s technical problems, and collaborate with sales team to promote new businesses. In three years I successfully completed more than 20 projects as project leader, generated solid relationship with customers, and earned the highest Customer Satisfaction across the company. As a result, I was promoted twice and became a Senior Principal Engineer, before I decide to explore more opportunities in life and became a full time MBA  student at UConn.
