Although I am working in the IT industry, I feel that I have benefited from my past training as a psychology major tremendously. Not only has it satisfied my intellectual curiosity to learn about the world, it has also trained me in a wide range of transferable skills including research, critical thinking, communication and quantitative analysis etc.I have been applying these skills every single day of my work, when I am designing user-experiences, developing digital organization strategies and well as interpreting natural language, personalities and emotions with Cognitive Data Analytics. I am always grateful to the wonderful professors like Prof.Fred Smyth and Prof.Oishi Shigehiro who made my psychology learning one of my fondest memories in UVA.
