Last Friday I accepted the admission offer for the PhD program at the MIT Media Lab - which means I’ll be continuing in the Lifelong Kindergarten research group for four more years. The last two years of the Masters program have been an amazing ride. Initially it took me a while to register that I was, in fact, in grad-school, but once I did, and after having had the chance to work with Mitch and the other wonderful members of the group (and beyond), it was an easy decision to accept the admission offer. I still do not know for sure what direction I’ll take in terms of research after the Masters thesis process is over - I’ll definitely continue to explore the space of programming with data, but there are some other things in the pipeline as well which I would like to try. The next four years look exciting!
