Hwu and Bianchi share with listeners the path they took to get to their current jobs, the ins and outs of their daily routine and what they like best about their chosen fields. They also share insights they’ve gleaned throughout their professional experiences and what students should know about pursuing a unique job. Listen in as our hosts pull back the curtain and get the inside scoop on these innovative careers.
