From Physics to Data Science

We are living in a world where we have access to more data than ever before. This enables us to achieve goals that we could only imagine not too long ago. We can gain insight into complex topics and predict outcomes that can help millions of people across the world. And we are just beginning.

This huge accumulation of data has caused the emergence of a new field called Data Science. Data science has been called the sexiest job of the 21st century! There are more and more people that want to break into this field every year from different fields. A good portion of the people who currently work in this field are physicists. We are equipped with skills that help us work in a variety of fields and be very successful. 

Let’s explore my journey from Physics to data science and let’s find out if physics is what you have been looking for all along!
