Ishwinder Kaur

  • Alumna, Physical Language Workshop

 MS 2007
Senior Software Engineer at Google

Since the Media Lab, Ishwinder has taken a meandering path through the world of software engineering, starting in consumer electronics, with a large amount of time in HFT and hedge fund world, with a recent move to Google in the Maps PA. She is currently a senior software engineer at Google.

How did your experience at the Lab influence your next step?

I remember my Media Lab experience almost as a celebration--what can happen if we never say "why?", but only "why not?". It enthused me and enriched me. That sprit of innovation and courage is what I have tried to carry with me long after the Media Lab days are over.

There are as many paths as people. Carve your own route for what works best for you.
