Presented By: Department of Physics

LAGS Seminar | How I used my physics background in the real world.

Dave Glick (Chief Technology Officer for Flexe, Inc.)

Please contact Beth Demkowski, demkowsk@umich.edu for Zoom link.

Dave got his Ph.D. in Physics, during which time he decided that there was a whole world of things to do outside of academia when he graduated. He and his wife, who received a Ph.D. in Biochemistry, loaded up the car and moved to Seattle, where he found a job as a Project Manager at a small internet retailer called Amazon.com. How does this relate to a Physics degree? In Physics, we are taught to think from first principles and break down problems to their fundamentals. This can be applied to just about anything -- logistics, software development, people leadership. Dave will talk about how he used his background in Physics to do all of these things. This will be a casual discussion where he will answer students’ questions.
