PG Podcast - Episode 16 - Claire Le Goues on the glamorous life of assistant professors
November 2016 (perspective of an assistant professor)
Claire Le Goues (@clegoues) is an assistant professor in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), primarily affiliated with the Institute for Software Research. Her research interests span software engineering and programming languages. I first met Claire back in the summer of 2009 when we were both interning at Microsoft Research during our Ph.D. days.
In this PG Podcast, we talk about our glamorous lives as assistant professors: splitting our time between diverse types of tasks, finding healthy mental balance while consistently working hard, leading our research groups in the face of imperfect information and inherent uncertainty throughout the research process, and me doing my best Captain Picard impression.
