  • NAME: Natalia Dibbern

    CLASS: Senior

    MAJOR: Computer Science & Mathematics

    EXPECTED GRADUATION YEAR: 2018

    HOMETOWN & STATE: Buenos Aires, Argentina

    POST-GRAD PLANS: My goal right after graduation would be to travel the world and learn about new cultures. After that, I would like to work at a tech company as a software engineer. Once I gained more industry experience, I would like to return to school to get my masters.

    CAREER GOALS: Work as a software engineer or data scientist in the area of machine learning. I also want to become a Yoga instructor.

    FAVORITE PLACE TO STUDY: The Life Sciences Building and the Math Department

    MOST EFFECTIVE STUDY AND/OR TIME MANAGEMENT STRATEGY: Most professors assign homework and projects with a specified pattern. I would say learn that pattern and schedule your week accordingly. For example if you know that your math homework will be due every Friday, and that those will take 3 hours to complete, pick a day and a time that you will take each week to work on this homework specifically and stick to that plan.

    LMU CLUB AND ORGANIZATION MEMBERSHIP: Society of Women Engineers; Association for Computing Machinery
